The new rules could affect as many as 100 million Americans, although it's not clear how many of those people are currently unvaccinated.

The show must go on? No, March 14, 2020, changed all that when the shows definitely did not go on.

DALLAS (AP) — Ask anyone old enough to remember travel before Sept. 11, 2001, and you're likely to get a gauzy recollection of what flying was like.
