Final Note

There’s no place like home? Not if your candidate loses

Correction: This online story incorrectly identified the type of flight that contest winners would receive. JetBlue is offering a round-trip ticket. The text of this story has been corrected.


This final note today, apropos of the debate, I guess.

JetBlue has a new contest it’s running; the big prize is a free flight. It’s a round-trip flight so you can flee the country…when the candidate you didn’t vote for wins. The tagline reads: “Live free, or fly.”

So it’s funny, right? But also sort of really… not.
