So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Tips for the traveller

Just a few things I've noticed while I was travelling:

*Airline employees and TSA folks are really nice when you encounter them at 7 a.m. on a Tuesday. The same isn't true when you're dealing with them at 5:30 p.m. on a Friday.

*Don't lean your elbows on your knees while sitting on a toilet with an automatic flush mechanism. (In case you're wondering, the toilet will flush every few minutes and splash toilet water on your backside.)

*The friendliest people on the airplane are those NOT in the vicinity of a small child.

Discoveries not related to travel:

*I'm the last woman under 40 who still wears slips. No one else does.

*Women don't wear hose any more either; even to formal events. For me, this is a huge win. I hate hose and always have. So, this change in the norm is a plus for me.

*Rude people still suck. Turn your cell phone off - or at least turn your ringer off - when you go into a movie or conference session. Additionally, during a conference or awards presentation, keep your fucking trap shut. I was totally perplexed when our lifetime achievement award winner (a recently retired college professor) talked to the CEO of a big media company throughout the awards banquet Thursday night. Not just a whisper here and there, but actually talking loud enough that I could hear them 20 feet away! The audacity and complete lack of good manners made me seethe the whole banquet.
