Little things sometimes make a big difference when it comes to travel safety. Like a strategically placed zipper.
Summer travel often makes us think of the Divine. If the flight is bumpy, we pray to God for a safe return to earth. After a long day at Disneyland, those of us with young children may find ourselves asking the Lord to give us greater capacity to love and understand.

As the National Transportation Board (NTSB) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) have learned more about the Amtrak Train 188 derailment, the FRA has already begun to require Amtrak make changes in their safety systems. But there appears to be other common sense improvements Amtrak and FRA should at least consider implementing which can save many lives in a train accident.
Most cruise ships aren’t registered — or “flagged” — in the United States. But most of their corporate headquarters, their passengers and their points of embarkation are based here.
It seems as though an increasing number of parents are letting kids make the move to the front seat of the car way too soon.
In many states, children who reach age 8 or 4 feet 9 inches tall (57 inches) no longer have to use a car seat or booster seat.
That’s the law, but it’s not necessarily what’s best for the safety of your child.
This week, I attended an annual trade show where tens of thousands of members of the cruise industry meet in Miami Beach to discuss trends in the world of cruising. The executives present a “state of the cruise industry” speech. The CEOs of Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), and MSC Cruises discussed building bigger ships and expanding into new markets such as Cuba and China.
The CEO of NCL remarked that “Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon could be more lucrative than Cuba.” The convention audience politely applauded and the other cruise executives smiled.
I couldn’t help tweeting “have you heard of ISIS?”
