No Miles For You! — Another triumph for airline customer service. Go, Delta.

Kior ‘Biocrude’ Plant a Step toward Advanced BiofuelsA Kior plant in Mississippi will start shipping fuel made from wood chips as planned as it chases large-scale production. I've long wondered why this wasn't a much higher engineering and business priority.

Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the DayChick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.” Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family Rule of the Day: Selling your daughter into slavery (Exodus 21:7-11).
