Jetting Home

I learned something this evening on the way home: the best view of the jet engine intake is not the back row — it’s the second to the back row. Good to know.

A View from the Exit Row

Mmm… :-)

Today’s airport experience in PDX was downright nice: the TSA was scanning boarding passes at the far end of the line and sending a large portion through the “PRE” line. Those of us lucky enough to be selected went through security pre-9/11 style: coats, shoes, and belts stayed on and computers remained packed. As another passenger said, “It’s like were not the enemy today.”

I hope your day was filled with nice surprises, too.
