as we all know, there's nothing like holiday travel in america. as i sat waiting in an airport on the initial snowy leg of my journey, i watched person after person walk by dragging bags on wheels for hours. and none of the women looked like the covers and the pictures in the majority of the magazines they were buying. no surprise there. but in retrospect, it's interesting that dove got so much attention for their campaign on natural beauty. rather, that kind of campaign might be the norm rather than the exception.
and ya gotta love the large door mat size red carpet by the gates. the red carpet line opens briefly for first class and premier, and then closes to the rest of the passengers who walk in next to the red carpet on the regular carpet. if the economy gets any worse, will it be embarrassing to take the 1 1/2 steps on the red carpet? it probably should be, if it isn't already embarrassing for the airlines.
