Was reading the Austin Statesman which is a horrible paper and they had an article about "Southwest gains Congress' OK for non-stop." In the pic of the caption they show this "American Airlines CEO Gerard Arpey, left, with Southwest CEO Herb Kelleher, says American may add Love Field flights."
How ignorant can they be is posting that Herb is CEO? If something has changed in that title at WN I was unaware of it. Last time I looked Gary Kelly, was CEO of Southwest. Just goes to show the mistakes made in papers and the sources they use.

Herb is one of the co-founders, an ex-CEO and is the head of the Board of Directors at Southwest. He is clearly recognized as one of the leaders of the company and still has considerable power and invovement with them. So a paper made a mistake - BFHD.
