Hi, I’m Troy McClure–you might remember me from such automated information kiosks as “Welcome to Springfield Airport!” and “Where’s Nordstrom?”
Sorry for the lack of of posts this week, but it’s been a bit crazy lately: on Tuesday morning, I appeared on the Tammy Bruce Show, to discuss why The Happening isn’t, unless you enjoy zillion dollar enviro-snuff films, basically discussing this post from the weekend. That was tremendous fun–then it was all downhill from there. As soon as my interview concluded, I flew to New Jersey to visit relatives, one of whom is in rather ill-health. In addition to a flight that arrived into Philly two hours late at 2:30 AM, my luggage unfortunately decided not to join me on the flight; despite numerous frantic calls to American Airlines, my bags didn’t show up until yesterday evening. But on the bright side–he said, in a tone laced with bitter, bitter irony–you’ve never met a friendlier, more cheerful staff than the baggage handlers at Philadelphia International Airport at 3:15 in the morning…
As I said recently–The Mrs. Grace L. Ferguson Airline & Storm Door Company: a user manual for cost-conscious airlines, a sneak preview of the future for the rest of us.
Watch for regular blogging to resume in a bit–and thank you for patience.
