The GEM Cruiselink consortium is enlisting a Dallas firm to
provide Web sites to its agency members. Upon hearing the news,
agent Dinah Saur of Plate 'o' Shrimp Travel sniffed, "What the hell
am I gonna do with a Web site? My clients don't want to deal with
that Internet stuff. Both of 'em said so."
Opening paragraph from an article I hope to never see on Travel
Weekly Crossroads: "Travel agent arbiter William 'The Guillotine'
McGee ordered Debit Memo Travel of Houston to surrender its stock
and plates. McGee -- who, according to sources, would rather be
feared than loved -- said that the agency failed to pay for $30,000
in dishonored sales drafts and that he didn't care for the agency
owner's tone of voice."
