I’ve been flying American Airlines for more than 30 years—the past seven years as Executive Platinum—so I’ve read many editions of American Way magazine. I’ve witnessed several “remakes” and the coming and going of a few editors. Over the years I’ve generally enjoyed most editions and think the “remake” (Jan. 2017) is off to a good start.
The way in which you celebrated Black history and culture within the February 2017 issue was remarkable. Featuring the artistic contributions of Janelle Monáe and Corey Hawkins in ways that transcended entertainment was refreshing. As a Black man, I appreciated the way in which you commemorated Black achievement as American achievement.

I enjoyed the article on the first Super Bowl (Jan. 2017). I was living in Orange County, California, and since we were in the blackout range (a 100-mile radius of Los Angeles), we couldn’t get the game on television. The L.A. Times published instructions on how to pull in the broadcast by creating an antenna out of a metal coat hanger attached to a broomstick. This “high tech” solution allowed us to watch the game, although it was quite fuzzy!
