Delta Air Lines’ Board of Directors Announces Annual Meeting Date

Living in Atlanta it's hard not to either be a Delta baby or to be friends with a Delta baby. I grew up in a Delta Air Lines home. Delta employees were part of our extended family. The changes are Delta mirror the changes that have occurred across the country in businesses. Yes, September 11th impacted the airline industry mightily. However, all it did was expedite what was already written in the tea leaves. Despite all the ups and downs, there will always be a soft spot in my psyche for this particular airline. I hope they do well and I'll continue to watch their rise from the coals (didn't quite hit the ash stage) carefully. - TBB
