Southwest Airlines will discontinue service from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to Newark, N.J., beginning March 10. The carrier has offered three daily nonstop flights from Baltimore to Newark since June 2011. Southwest didn't realize the anticipated demand for the service, said Paul Flaningan, the airline's spokesman. He added that consumers tend to drive or take the train between the two cities. The airline cited the same reason last month when it said it would end three daily flights between BWI and LaGuardia Airport in New York.

Last Thursday afternoon, Michael Quattlebaum Jr. waited to board a flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Raleigh, N.C., where the 27-year-old would spend Christmas with his mother. It was a familiar feeling, as Quattlebaum found himself sitting in airports many times this year. But those trips were different: Quattlebaum, a gay man, spent 2013 touring the world, from Singapore to Germany to Texas' South by Southwest Festival, under the female rap alias Mykki Blanco. On Saturday, he will add Baltimore to the list when Mykki headlines the Ottobar . Along with the May release of a strong EP titled "Betty Rubble: The Initiation," Quattlebaum says it was his growing reputation as "a really strong performer" that allowed him to tour internationally for the first time this year.

A week after heralding the arrival of two airlines to the fold, BWI Marshall Airport is dealing with the loss of Southwest Airlines' three daily nonstop flights to New York's LaGuardia Airport. The airline announced that it will shift those flights to two LaGuardia-Nashville daily runs and add a sixth LaGuardia-Chicago Midway flight. The adjustment, the airline said, "really enhances LaGuardia's access to our midwestern, southern and western network. " The service between New York and Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport will end Jan. 5. Southwest and AirTran, which have merged, are responsible for about 70 percent of BWI's commercial passenger traffic.

I'm a big fan of technology. Most guys are. This is why all important inventions were invented by guys. For example, millions of years ago, there was no such thing as the wheel. One day, some primitive guys were watching their wives drag a dead mastodon to the food-preparation area. It was exhausting work; the guys were getting tired just watching. Then they noticed some large, smooth, rounded boulders, and they had an idea: They could sit on the boulders and watch! This was the first in a series of breakthroughs that ultimately led to television.

ARLINGTON, Va. - US Airways Group Inc. shares have fallen 17 percent in four days amid increasing investor doubts that the U.S. Department of Justice will approve UAL Corp.'s planned purchase of the No. 6 carrier. Shares of Arlington-based US Airways fell $3.03, or 8.1 percent, to $34.35 yesterday, the fourth straight decline since Monday's close of $41.56. The shares are at their lowest point since October and are trading more than 40 percent below UAL's $60-a-share offer. "The market is finally getting the message that the regulatory wave is beginning to turn against" the merger, said Tom Burnett, president of Merger Insight.

Only weeks after he was named last winter to succeed Dr. Robert M. Heyssel as president of Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System, Dr. James A. Block survived a brush with death when he escaped the crash of USAir Flight 405 at New York's LaGuardia Airport. It was the kind of close call that alters one's perspective on life. Musing the other day about the experience, Dr. Block said, "The small things don't bother you nearly as much, and the big things look smaller. But perspective is what life is all about."
