It’s so irritating when publications basically barf back PR information into the baby bird mouths of their readership. But this might actually be good: today only (or until they run out) JetBlue is offering one way 14 buck tickets from SFO-Long Beach and/or from Long Beach-SFO, as long as you travel between today and April 8.

ABC7 helpfully notes that with taxes, that means each ticket is $24.60, making a round trip $49.20. While that’s not nuthin’, especially in these scrimpy times, it’s still impressively cheap.

Ever since reading Mission Mission’s impassioned defense of LA, this correspondent has meant to give SoCal another chance. And if we didn’t have things to do between now and April 8, we would totally be doing this. View image
