    We’ll see just how hands-off they are. I don’t believe they’ll leave it as a separate entity. Remember Travel Library? It was the only competitor to TA in the early days so TA bought it and killed it. It has a history of quashing potential competitors before they become a real threat to its virtual monopoly.
