Bigger, better?


The mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley, proposed a $1 billion expansion of already behemoth O'Hare Airport. A suggestion for the good mayor: That O'Hare, it's plenty big. Leave it alone. One time, passing through O'Hare, my connecting flight was just seven gates away, but I still had to nap for 48 hours straight to recover from the walk. If Chicago's air traffic truly has exceeded O'Hare's capacity, face it -- the only option is to pave over Lake Michigan and just let planes land on it.

United and American once again are vying for additional Chicago-London routes. In an effort to settle it, the DOT reportedly said it will award the routes to whichever airline's CEO can consume the most steak and kidney pie in 15 minutes -- and keep it down.
