Early Travelers Checks Travelers checks have been around longer than I thought. This ad is from 1920! (They were called banker's checks then.) I still take traveler's checks on my vacations, but I'm in the minority.

9-11 Response - Gander NL The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 showed the dark side of humanity. In contrast, what occurred in Gander, Newfoundland highlighted the finest qualities of humanity. As this NBC clip shows, when the reality of the attacks set in, nearly 40 international and domestic flights scheduled to land in the northeastern U.S. were instead diverted to Gander Airport. For the 10,000 residents of Gander, taking care of "the plane people" suddenly became a collective community project for the next two days. The generosity of the locals left a lasting and overwhelmingly positive impression on the stranded travelers.

He And She - Failed Sitcom 1967 In the fall of 1967 CBS introduced one of its first urbane, "sophisticated" situation comedies--He & She. It flopped despite having an excellent cast. Real-life husband and wife Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss played Dick and Paula Hollister. Dick was a cartoonist; Paula worked for Travelers' Aid in New York City. Dick's creation of Jetman was turned into a TV series with Jack Cassidy playing the role. Even though it had two blockbuster hits (The Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres) preceding it in CBS' Wednesday night lineup, viewers generally did not stick around for He & She. Benjamin believed that the two popular lead-in shows actually served to hurt He & She because its urban comedy was a world apart from that of the rural sitcoms. Twenty-six episodes were made in the lone season it aired. Here is the opening montage.
