I flew on Alaska Airlines this week.
Before the flight took off, I witnessed a first.
The pilot joined the passengers at the gate to announce a flight delay.
No microphone. No airline staff at his side. Just him. His voice. His proactive communication.

My friend Paul Houston, in England, put together Sparta World, a work-in-progress website for Spartaphiles and aficionados of all things Spartans. The site is interesting in and of itself (and constantly evolving) and also a great jumping-off point and clearinghouse for re-enactor groups, hoplite fighters, artists, writers, and all other contemporary upholders of the Lakedaemonian tradition and ethos—and just for the fun of it. Paul invites all interested groups and individuals to contact him, link to the site, and network with their “peers.”
