Just when we thought Google couldn't get any more loveable.
First George Clooney, now free WiFi. Clearly Lambert Airport was the place to be in St. Louis in 2009. To be fair, free WiFi and Clooney were not simultaneous events: the WiFi only started today, and, like Clooney, it will be fleeting, lasting only until January 15, 2010.

Still. Free WiFi! This exciting new development is due to the largesse of Google, which, for the holidays, has placed free WiFi in 46 other airports across the country and also on all Virgin America flights.

"We'd like to make the holiday travel crush a little easier and more pleasant - and what better way to do it then with what we know best, the Internet?" writes Google.

What better way indeed?

But if you should get a case of the Holiday Spirit and wish to emulate Google's kindness, you can use Google Checkout to make a charity donation to Climate Savers Computing, One Economy Corporation or Engineers Without Borders USA. Google will match all donations and give an addition $15,000 to the highest-donating airport to pass on to the local charity of its choice.
