When American Airlines offered a buyout package, so many employees eagerly jumped ship that now the bankrupt carrier must hire 1,500 new flight attendants.

Training will begin in January 2013, at which time new hires will be issued a standard piece of equipment for American Airlines crews: 3/8ths-inch socket sets for reattaching seats that break loose and threaten to career across the cabin.

21st century wine cooler: Beam Inc. and other liquor makers have introduced a new type of tipple that blends hard booze with softer stuff.

Warning: This product would seem to fly in the face of one of the most time-honored maxims there is: Beer Before Liquor, Get Sicker Quicker.

Binder minder: President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney returned to the campaign trail Wednesday, with both pitching aggressively for the support of women voters.

Key Obama surrogate Bill Clinton stumped in battleground states, but also dropped by a Romney event to ask if the former Massachusetts governor still has those "whole binders full of women."
