    Today is a GLORIOUS day for United Loyalists around the Globe. Effective December 31, 2012, dear respected Supreme Leader Jeff Smisek, CEO of United and Lodestar of Commercial Aviation, shall ascend to a level of greatness that warrants permanent future reference as Chairman Jeff. My level of excitement at hearing this news far eclipses that ever displayed by anyone in the history of the human race.

    That horse died a long time ago. I'm still waiting for those lawsuits that were discussed about the mm program. :)

    AFAIK, the loss was akin to housekeeping. Sometimes, it is necessary to get rid of dirt and trash. Think of this as a time for renewal
