Comment Why? (Score 1) 607

Is there a linked article I'm missing that explains the reason for naming it the Colbert Flu? I can't tell if the intent is to mock Colbert, annoy him, or honor him. Or was "Colbert" just the first thing that came to mind?

Comment Re:frequent flyer? (Score 1) 67

when I was a federal employee it was illegal to use frequent flyer bonuses of any type.

They changed that a decade or more ago. The theory is, since these programs and benefits are offered to everyone, they aren't considered a "bribe" to government employees. In practice, I think allowing use of these benfits still increases unnecessary travel and travel costs (due to individual loyalty to particular airlines/hotel chains which aren't always the best choice from the government standpoint).
