You know what you can count on when you fly today? Reliable transportation that is usually the quickest way to get from Point A to Point B.
That's the good news. There are several things one should not count on.
5 Things You Should Never, Ever Count on While Flying
Feel free to tell me what I've missed.
1. On-time flights
In general, airlines are getting better at landing when they say they will. But do not count on it! Weather is always a factor. Take the statistics from February of last year showing only about 80 percent of all U.S. flights were on time. Unfortunately, in February of this year, only 70 percent were. And in January, only 67 percent of flights were on time.
And don't get smug now that spring has sprung; thunder and lightning can delay more planes than snow and ice.
Tip No. 1: Avoid tight connections. If your plane is supposed to arrive in New York at noon so you can board a 1 p.m. flight to London, that's way too tight. Give yourself several hours or fly in theRead More »from 5 Things You Should Never, Ever Count on While Flying

The Both’s “The Both” ****
The Both is the duo formed by Aimee Mann and Ted Leo. On the surface, this union seems both unusual and fitting. Going back and listening to their separate respective work with ‘Til Tuesday and Chisel it might not seem like a likely match, but if you listen to Mann’s solo work and Leo’s work with his band’s the Pharmacists, it is easy to see that they are both aiming for a power-pop middle-ground.
