Home, almost three hours late. To add irony to injury, coming back from the airport, the cab had to detour off of SE Chavez due to a police roadblock connected to an auto collision. By then, all I could do was laugh.

Also, United finally admitted the delays were not due to air traffic restrictions but to earlier flight delays rippling through the system. So I can no longer blame the president.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Personally, I am always happy to blame United. (They're my second most hated airline, after our blessed ryanair.)

United breaks guitars, I hear. (I'm not generally a fan of country music, but this one tickles my fancy.)

This is the difference between JayNews and Certain Other Media. You carefully examined the facts and correctly chose not to blame the president for something that was clearly the fault of something else. Certain Other Media would have found a way, any way, to continue to blame the president.
