The invaluable Travel Insider points us toward free megabus rides, although unfortunately only in the East for now.
In the meantime, the actor Alec Baldwin gets kicked off a plane because he won't stop playing Words With Friends. AA claims this happened after he allegedly kicked the lavatory door and made rude and abusive remarks. How addictive that game can be - just ask Kathy!
What with the free Internet on that megabus, it does look like a good travel option for Mr. Baldwin, doesn't it?
While on the topic of naughty plane behavior in the news, maybe the AirTran (Southwest-owned) flight attendant who consecutively kicked three different women off the same flight, in the way an ineffective teacher keeps sending students to the principal's office, should also consider taking the bus instead.
