Bruce Black, chairman of Synergi, said that Navigant
International's decision to withdraw from the agency consortium
will not hurt Synergi but, in fact, will make it stronger. Funny,
this sounds eerily similar to what I told my friends when my junior

Premier Cruises is hoping that a new financial restructuring
will buy the company enough time to organize its financial sock

Congress approved airports' use of improvement funds to pay for
investigating and fixing Year 2000-compliance problems. This will
be money very well spent, and it's reassuring to see airports and

much effort these industries put toward Y2K, I would sooner drink
bleach than be airborne at midnight, Jan. 1, 2000.
