Nothing Trending.

Apparently it’s a slow day in twitterland.

Gee, I wonder why.

Let’s look for clues here as to why this might be in the trending column.

This is why I don’t put a lot of stock in what is presented in this column by Twitter. I assert that this column is entirely to easy to fix for promotions and items you want to appear to be on peoples minds.

Is it advertising or is it marketing?

I wrote an article about advertising and marketing for my friend Becky at her Small Business site. If you have a small business you need to add her site to your RSS feed.

Airlines and their additional fees.

The airlines have been, crying, complaining about the high fuel prices for a while now. To combat these soaring prices, United Airlines, US Airways and American Airlines, to name a few, have begun to charge for your checked luggage. The rules and regulations and charging options vary from Airline to Airline. Now United is opting to require minimum stays for their passengers beginning in October, 2008. While, overall this new trend of baggage charges and minimum stays is a slap in the face of customer service and the flying public, there is a big missing in the overall issue of rising airline fuel prices.

Where are the airlines, here in the U.S., on the rising cost of their fuel? I’ve yet to hear any airline spokesman taking Congress and the Democrats to task on their blocking of drilling and seeking sources of energy that we have here in the U.S.. Do they not care that the stonewalling by Democrats is a direct result of their higher prices? Are they all tired of being in the airline business and are just looking for the easy way out? Also, what is the trickle down effect of the horrible customer service and airline new draconian rules and regulations upon the economy and their flying public?
