    Scroll down to the travel note of the week. He apparently isn't just lobbing shots at people from his column. Now he is feeling his oats in public.

    Adds a whole new layer to "Peter or Parody."

    I really would have voted for parody if you had posted it without the link.

    Didn't know Starwood Preferred meant elevator privileges. Like King said, what an a-hole.

    Kissing Suzy Kolber does not let me down.

    Former Starwood Platinum here.

    Would not have expected to be able to cut the elevator line.

    But I probably would have done the same thing King did. But I wouldn't have even written about it on here or on facebook let alone publish it. (Not that the latter is an option for me.)

    And if I did, I wouldn't call it a lift. Unless it's in the U.K., it's an elevator.

    Of course on some level they are all classics, but this week he really was on his "A" game (or something.) Here's one excerpt:

    You have to admit, not everyone can work Larry King, Joan Rivers, and Carlos Lee into the same column.

    I much prefer the Westin River North for its close proximity to better restaurants.

    I can't help but wonder when these things come up for Peter that he thinks "boy wait till the SJ crowd reads this one.

    It's funny for all the times he has played the "I'm Peter King card" for special privileges that he is upset when someone else trumps him. When he stole the Tejada foul ball from the little kid I just wish there was some one there to yell at him.

    In the situation PK describes, when the guy says he wasn't getting on the elevator, you just say "good" and go about your business.

    By calling the guy an ahole, King is just as responsible for the mess as the other ahole.

    Also, when is any body part other than the penis described as "girthy?" I'm all for going to the thesaurus from time to time... call him hefty, rotund, whatever. But girthy?

    they guy was obviously an amateur. if you are going to jump a line - just keep going - no eye contact - no words.

    Same applies when jumping ahead of traffic in the right lane.

    King should have used his ample frame in more of a box out technique. Wide base - keep the feet moving - look straight ahead.
