It may be cheaper to travel by bus instead of flying, but watch out for sneaky fees — especially if you're buying a ticket for someone else. Paul Kleibrink was hoping to save some money when he went online to buy a ticket from Greyhound Lines Inc., the country's largest intercity bus operator. His grandson's girlfriend needed to return home to Oregon, and Kleibrink, 81, had agreed to spring for the cost. "I guess I'm a soft touch," the Santa Cruz resident told me. A one-way ticket on Southwest Airlines would have cost about $160.

Could it be that the person who founded Facebook, the man who connected so many individuals that the total defies belief (500 million and counting), is himself incapable of close personal friendship? Is it possible that the world's youngest self-made billionaire, a 26-year-old whose creation unites people in 207 countries using 70 languages, is the loneliest guy on the planet? If that sounds like a hell of a premise, you don't know the half of it. Smartly written by Aaron Sorkin, directed to within an inch of its life by David Fincher and anchored by a perfectly pitched performance by Jesse Eisenberg, "The Social Network" is a barn-burner of a tale that unfolds at a splendid clip.
