Air Travel

I flew in to Atlanta over the weekend for a wedding. Two observations:
+I got through airport security with a bunch of uni-ball pens in my carry-on bag; this surprised me a bit, since the pens could clearly be used as lethal weapons in a pinch. Still, for precisely that reason, I was glad to have them.
+I wasn’t sure the crowd at LaGuardia was paying attention to Paula Zahn’s show on the TV overhead until Jonah Goldberg mentioned how PETA was protesting the designation of France, Germany and Belgium as the ‘Axis of Weasel’ on the grounds that it was unfair to weasels. That drew a big laugh — ah, the American street.
