Greetings from Dallas airport

Tuesday, December 09, 2008 by Dave Winer.

Changing planes here for NY/JFK. Permalink to this paragraph

Going to take the AirTrain into NY, this time I'm going to get on the LIRR in Jamaica and ride it into Penn Station. Permalink to this paragraph

I hear from people who are regular JFKers that this is much better than taking the A train fom Howard Beach, which is how I got there last timePermalink to this paragraph

The guy behind me on the plane is talking on the phone, being very stern, and talking about screening a movie in DC for "Barak." He is wearing two hats. And being pretty rude to everyone around. Thankfully they don't allow people to use their phones when we're in the air. Permalink to this paragraph

I'm doing crosswords and watching an American Experience episode on the Crash of 1929. Remarkable how many parallels there are to 2008. Basically we unwound a lot of the regulations that were put in place after the crash, so we got another one.  Permalink to this paragraph

People are telling the guy behind me that they "Love your work." Wonder who he is. Didn't get a good look. He's black and wearing two hats, and is kind of short but he doesn't look like Spike Lee. I'm so clueless. You can quote me. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

I don't want to be rude and turn around and stare. Permalink to this paragraph

Last time I sat near someone famous on an airplane it was Suze OrmanPermalink to this paragraph
