A Discussion with
Robert L. Crandall of Eastern Point, former President and CEO of American Airlines, largest U.S. Direct Air Carrier
Richard N. Rosenfeld of Rocky Neck, former President and CEO of International Weekends’ Charter Vacations, largest U.S. Indirect Air Carrier
Following the end of World War II, America turned its aircraft manufacturing and well-trained pilots to the task of providing civil aviation to a burgeoning middle class. During the ensuing decades, those manufacturing facilities introduced the first American passenger jets, the first intercontinental jets, the first wide bodied jets, the first supersonic jets, and the first jumbo jets, all to serve that rapidly expanding public. At the same time, former military pilots formed and populated more than a thousand new airlines, which brought American transportation and Americans themselves to places all over the world.
Two executives, who played often competing leadership roles in the evolution of commercial air travel, will discuss the experiences that both would describe as an “air war.” Bob Crandall led American Airlines to become, during the 1980s, the largest U.S. regularly scheduled air carrier. Richard Rosenfeld led International Weekends to become, in the early 1980s, the largest U.S. charter flight vacation company. Competition between regularly scheduled airlines and charter-flight travel was a prime mover for deregulating the American airline industry and for the aviation price competition that consumers enjoy today.

What if the idea of free choice is an illusion? Wouldn’t that be shocking? After all, the notions that we are free to make the choices we make and especially the choices that determine whether we are successful or not, criminals or not, moral or not, responsible or not, and praiseworthy or not are at the very core of our religious, political, and moral codes. Religion makes us answerable for our actions because it says we have “free will.” Our “free” enterprise system assumes we are “free” to make good or bad economic choices and is designed to reward us accordingly. Our criminal justice system punishes those who “choose” to commit crimes.
But suppose freedom of choice is just a myth. That it is just a rallying cry for Western Civilization. Will our idea of freedom survive philosophical scrutiny? And if it doesn’t, what are we left with? That’s what this discussion is about.

Are you an artist who feels challenged when you have to resize an image for a show submission, or someone who has wanted to learn image editing, photo montage or digital art? Do you want to be able to design your own business card, postcard, flier or other image document? Have you always wanted to learn Photoshop but were daunted by the overwhelming scope of the program, so gave up?
E.J. is now offering Photoshop class for beginners to intermediate users who want to learn and be able to do more with Photoshop. I have been working with Photoshop for over 15 years, and although I do not consider myself a “Master”, I know a lot and use Photoshop as my go to program for everything from imagine editing to creating unique digital artwork and other image and text focused documents.
If you are interested in taking a class, call me at 857-891-9054 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
