    You Are Now Free To Roam About The Country Between Chicago And Baltimore

    The thing I like best about Southwest Airlines isn't the frequent flights, or the low fares - it's the apparently radical notion that a one-way fare should be half the price of a round-trip fare. Too bad I need to go into Midway to catch a flight, but that little half-price one-way fare thing makes it cheaper to fly Southwest, even with the overnight trip to Chicago and back, then to fly any airline out of Cedar Rapids.

    JetBlue also does the one-way is just half. But I've found that their prices are often actually more expensive than the big airlines (when going round-trip, anyway), and their frequent flyer program sucks (pretty much impossible to get a free ticket unless you are regular business traveler).

    But anyway, you know people who fly one-way tickets are terrorists, right? That's what the people at Homeland Security tell me, anyway. I flew a one-way ticket out to CA when I moved a couple years ago. I'm still waiting for the terrorist tendencies to kick in.
