So we are sitting on a delayed flight home from Miami. Mechanical problems with the airplane.
We were watching the new fall tv show Pan Am last Sunday, which represents a very glamorous take on air travel in the 1960s.
Now, not so much. It's one part of modern life which has got much cheaper - but commodified, security-processed and made a little like livestock processing. ho hum If it wasn't cheap, we wouldn't go to Miami for the weekend.
We'll just be pleased to get home tonight at this rate.
