Elizabeth and I just had two awesome days in Denver with Team Frontier Airlines. We go out there every year for our annual "check-up" on all things CAK. We talked about advertising, sales, revenue management, philosophy, costs, kids, fun promotions and what it means to be true partners.

I had the pleasure of taking in Dr. Luis Proenza's state of the university (of Akron) speech today in downtown Akron. It was fantastic! Proenza is one of those rare leaders who can thoughtfully and persuasively layout a plan and attract folks to his position. Today was no exception. He is clear about the University's mission to seed economic development, encourage commercialization of technology patented by researchers at the U, and work with private and public sector leaders to collaborate (like the new...
