To Southwest Airlines: A Modest Proposal

From Tim Cavanaugh at Reason Hit & Run:

Texas lawmakers are considering repealing a 26-year-old law that protects consumers and makes air travel safer by barring airlines at Dallas Love Field from flying beyond Texas and six nearby states—thus ensuring that Southwest Airlines can't compete with American Airlines on flights from Dallas to Chicago and other major cities. American is working to make sure passengers remain safe from the option of taking another airline.

Personally, I think Texas should repeal the Wright Amendment under the condition that Southwest stop trying to "entertain" us on every flight. The last few times I had to fly Southwest it was like a very bad Night At The Improv; halfway through the final leg, I was praying the Shoe Bomber was on board...
