The big breakup


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 high school girlfriend dumped me.

Premier Cruises is hoping that a new financial restructuring will buy the company enough time to organize its financial sock drawer. When asked what it ultimately will take to get Premier 100% back on track, Wall Street analyst I.C. Greenbacks said, "Money. And lots of it. Duh."

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 airlines taking this issue so seriously, not to mention Capitol Hill giving them a boost. But I have to be honest: No matter how much effort these industries put toward Y2K, I would sooner drink bleach than be airborne at midnight, Jan. 1, 2000.
