On The Road – St. Louis, MO

April 15, 2008

Just about the time that I thought I had every airport experience, today I had a new one. We broke every traffic rule to make it to the airport for a flight, only to find that it was delayed an hour. The reason given for the delay was “The Pope”. That’s right, I was told, air traffic control has slowed down all the traffic coming from the east coast as a result of the Pope’s eminent arrival. OK, the big guy trumps business and I guess I just need to accept it like all other unexplained acts of divine intervention.

Another beer, bartender…
