THE INSITE HAS A NEW TELEVISION AT HEADQUARTERS!

EVERYTHING IS NOW CRYSTAL CLEAR AND BIGGER!

After enduring a 26 inch television in my room for about a year I figured it was time to upgrade. So, initially I upgraded to a 40 inch television. It was just way too big for the bedroom. I ended up back at Best Buy and purchased a 32 inch Insignia LCD television. What did I do that for? After only one night there were ghost images burned on the screen. I immediately took that one back the next day. I finally settled on what I purchased but took back nearly two years ago. I bought the LG. Life’s Good right? It’s my television of choice so I settled on a 37 inch. It’s big for a bedroom but what’s life if you can’t see yourself on the nightly news in 37 inches. Let’s see if I can avoid the headaches I had with LG a few years back. Welcome the new edition to Insite headquarters!

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES GETS POOR RATING!

WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS HAVE YOU HAD WITH THIS HOUSTON COMPANY?

Flights on U.S. airlines were on time more frequently in April than the month before and improved from a year earlier, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Hawaiian Airlines had the best on-time performance, while Comair — a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines Inc. — had the worst. Among legacy carriers.

Northwest Airlines — operated by Atlanta-based Delta — was on-time the most.

And Houston-based company Continental Airlines Inc. posted the worst on-time performance.

Legacy carriers are those airlines that had a large presence in a number of regions before the industry was deregulated in 1978.

The airlines reporting had a combined average on-time rate of 79.1 percent, compared with 78.4 percent in March. Last April the on-time arrival rate was 77.7 percent.

Weather problems were involved in a little less than half of the delays in April — a slight decline from March. Other delays came from congestion, airport operations, maintenance and crew issues.

There are fewer planes in the sky this year, as many carriers have scaled back their flights to meet lower passenger demand.

Reports of mishandled baggage declined in April from March, and were lower than in April 2008 as well.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE SHERIFF LATELY?

MISSING IN ACTION – AT LEAST IN MY BOOK!

Maybe it’s just me but I haven’t seen the newly elected Sheriff Adrian Garcia but once since he took office. Is it that Michael Jackson recluse thing he’s trying to pull off or what? Before he was elected he could be found everywhere pressing the flesh and kissing babies. But he’s been as invisible as well, Sheriff Tommy Thomas who was no where to be found while in office. And I’m not sure if his staff is headed down the right track as well. I put in a call to Keir Murray (spokesperson) today for an interview with the Sheriff about the new Department of Justice report on the jail. But I have yet to hear back from Murray. Is he playing the reclusive role as well? The promises of access and transparency from the new Sheriff is starting to fall short at least in the book of the Insite. Where have you seen the Sheriff lately?
