Can't disagree with any of them at all. Would add medical tourism to that as well. Seeking surgery (mostly cosmetic) outside the US at greatly reduced rates with equal qualifications and better technology. Thanks I assume to the FDA and the organization that oversees the medical licensing.

I think there was a "60 Minutes", "20/20" or "Dateline" story about medical tourism to India in the last couple months. And, you get full recuperation time, not revolving door surgery. "Medical tourism" is not so far fetched.

Default A Trend I Want to See

Someone brought this up in another forum, but I can definitely go for having more outlets at the gate so I can bump up the charge in my cell phone or especially my laptop before the flight. Things have changed since the day when the only thing using AC power at a gate was a vacuum cleaner. I'd be willing to pay a $1 increase to my fare to cover adding more outlets at gates.
