Signs of the Times

One doesn’t have to travel far to see a very different culture. I’m in the queen city, Charlotte, NC, right now, and “Toto, we’re not in Palo Alto anymore“:

…….and walking into my swanky hotel

The other funny thing is that when I flew out here, I was in the First Class section, but they also invite military personnel to board at the same time. Every one of the people in front of me were greeted by the lady gathering the boarding passes with a “Thank you for your service“, like they were doing it for free or something.

What did she say when I handed her my boarding pass? Zilch! Where’s the respect for providers of fine charting solutions and financial data anymore?
