The traffic situation is getting worse by the day, and our mayor asks us not to use our cars one or two days a week, but to ride a bus, walk or bike. This is not New York City. We need to build elevated highways -- skyways -- over the existing freeways, and reinstall light-rail systems on major arteries. Jeremy Vernon Westwood

Airline fees for carry-on bags were deemed "a slap," "outrageous" and "skyway robbery" as six Democratic senators moved to ban the practice after Spirit Airlines Inc. said it would charge passengers as much as $45 to stow luggage in overhead airplane compartments. "Let my briefcase go," Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-N.J.) said at a news conference Wednesday in Washington. "We're going from the sublime to the ridiculous with airlines."

A Disneyland visitor fell 20 feet from a Skyway gondola into a tree at the Alice in Wonderland ride Sunday and was hospitalized in stable condition, a park spokesman said. The victim was a 30-year-old man from Highland, Calif., said Lindsay Schnebly, a Disneyland spokesman. The park did not release the man's name. The customer was helped from the tree by paramedics and taken to Western Medical Center, which did not release any information about him.

Disneyland's Skyway, whose dangling pods have shuttled millions of camera-toting visitors since 1956, closes for good on Wednesday--a victim of declining popularity and the demand for workers on other rides, park officials said. During its history, the 40-foot-high cable ride has carried an estimated 150 million riders the quarter-mile span between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, straight through the Matterhorn.

Show biz, high tech and media sophistry coexisted alongside Bible thumpers and old-time religion this week as about 4,000 religious broadcasters gathered down by the Potomac riverside to share old and new ways to spread the Gospel. While the Bible Believers Baptist Church Bookstore of Clearville, Pa., was hawking hand-written tracts for $1 apiece at the 42nd annual convention of the National Religious Broadcasters, Cablewave Systems was selling coaxial cables to the same crowd.

Disneyland has closed down one of its landmark rides, Skyway. Just the very mention of its name evokes so many memories: from stealing kisses high above the madding crowd on Grad Night to showering unsuspecting fellow guests below with candy or popcorn. And from what I've gathered over the years, Skyway was a shared experience, perhaps even a rite of passage for most who grew up in Southern California. But for me it will always be a little more special.

High above the clouds, the view is the only thing that remains the same--Earth's curvature on the horizon, the beautiful orange sunsets over the Pacific, the snow-capped Sierra. But in these days of heightened security and terrorist alerts, 100 fighter jets have joined the airliners that travel the nation's skyways. For fighter pilots such as Maj.

This booming mountain town of about 15,000 was recently acclaimed by a national magazine as one of the most livable small cities in the United States. Until now, residents, including myself, have managed to keep this fact more or less quiet.
