"Meworry"- actually, not so funny, you're terribly mistaken (Did Dave Barger tell you that, too?)SWA made a profit last quarter without fuel hedging (about a $22 million profit). If you doubt me, call investor relations at SWA (you can find the number at southwest.com). And the beauty of it is that they did it while paying good wages.
