Yeah, I remember reading about Hakim in the LA Times back in September, when he landed up at Venice Beach. Seems he was trying to prove the existence of the goodness of human nature by walking across the US without having to ask for help.

I seem to remember France trying to sell itself to Americans via Woody Allen a few years back. There’s a good idea… (Not. I mean, I’m a Woody Allen fan but he doesn’t play well in Peoria.)

Thanks for the link-love, Michael!  Artist Emily Wick has been really thrilled with the blogosphere’s response to her awesome linoleum block map with the state mottos.

And thanks for posting the USA Today story about Twitter and travel. That’s pretty impressive about JetBlue and Southwest.  I’ll have to start following them. 

Mike Wilson may have been the first to twitter a plane crash in December, but Pam Mandel of Nerd’s Eye View was the first to twitter an emergency landing in September.  She was very calm about it and she ended up with two little bottles of scotch: http://www.nerdseyeview.com/blog/2008/09/22/unscheduled-landing/
