Scientific American and American Express

The May 2007 issue of SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN was waiting for me when I got home this evening and it looks like a particularly juicy one with articles on space science, medicine, energy, paleontology, information science, neuroscience and physics. Can’t wait to sink my teeth into it.

Also in the mail was an application for a Starwood Preferred Guest American Express Card. I have only one credit card that I use and I’ve had it forever, my United Mileage Plus Visa. I have never had an American Express Card, however, and some of the Starwood benefits it comes with are particularly useful, considering the fact I will be staying at three separate Starwood properties while on vacation in Europe this summer. So I think I’m going to sign up for it.

Scientific American and American Express: it was a patriotic day for the mails.
