No, but I'd give a smiley-face "emoticon" to anyone at the Journal-World who can point me to where the awesome photo of the eclipse that graced the front page of Tuesday's print edition may be found here on the online edition?

I'd pay extra to fly Southwest that doesn't have the assigned seating shenanigans and lets me check in my luggage.

It sure is nice to hear that you Lawrence Hyprocrites can afford to travel. You should 'give' your extra money to the 'T' or the homless shelter.

It's getting to the point I would pay $25 to not have to travel AT ALL. If I pay $25, will you let me just stay home and Skype in to whatever it is?

I had to tick not sure. One trip I was seated by the finest two young mothers, one for each leg of the trip. The first a long legged shorrttttt skirted 10 with a cute youngin who promptly fell asleep after takeoff. Luck of the Irish, and lo and behold a cute little gal with a one yr old next to me the rest of the way. Both window seats. I've never really been bothered by seatmates, it's the kid with his feet on the back of my seat the whole trip that I would pay to avoid.

Heck no! But I would pay extra to sit next to a good looking gal. Sadly she would probably pay even more to move! :(

I'd kick in a few bucks to get a seat well away from screaming children.

This is when common courtesy plays a role. When you notice that the husband/wife/fiance/etc of the person sitting beside you, isn't in your seat but instead a seat or two away...know what you do? You offer your seat. It's much easier than what people make it seem. Or at least that's what I've done....even on a long flight from Mexico. This resulted in sitting next to a group of brats, loud and obnoxious brats, but I felt it necessary to allow newlyweds to sit next to each other.

I travel a lot by myself and I'm a very moody and slightly tense flier. So I pay extra as it is to get early bird seating on SWA or a good seat on other airlines.

If I'm traveling with the boy...I may pay extra not to sit near him! He is worse than a small child. But being an adult, he is handy with the credit card when it is cocktail time. And he is much more calm after.

Well all trade once in the air. Wouldn't the airlines love that.
