[travel] Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the wiper

President Obama is visiting Portland this afternoon. I have felt the sweet caress of His Presidential Appendage in the flight delay here in San Francisco due to airspace restrictions at home. Currently posted for 45 minutes late, but if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

SFO has introduced free wireless, which in theory is good. Unfortunately they're following the DIA model of free wireless, which is to cripple the access so thoroughly as to make it all but useless. Besides which, it kicks you off every 45 minutes. Because, after all, who spends more than 45 minutes waiting in an airport anyway?

Why, yes, I am enjoying my afternoon. Thank you for asking.
