Fun day of travel so far. Arrived at LaGuardia for a 7:20 a.m. flight at 5:45 and barely made it thanks to a lengthy wait at the security line. It’s a mystery why this gets screwed up. The airlines have a pretty solid idea on a daily basis how many people will be flying and at what times. Why doesn’t TSA staff the checkpoints accordingly?
A Starbucks has a lot of people working in the morning because that’s when a lot of people buy coffee. Is it some mystery that a lot of people travel on a Friday morning?
The only good part of the day was an unexpected upgrade from Delta. Unfortunately it’s too early to take advantage of the free booze. Plus at some point today I will have to try and write coherently.
Heard on the radio this morning that the USGA will not compensate those golf fans who showed up at soggy Bethpage Black yesterday and saw a partial round because of the rain. The weather is nobody’s fault, but at least the Yankees did something for their customers yesterday.
If you have an iPhone, I’d recommend doing the software upgrade at night. It’s much faster. The upgrade is free and worth it, if only for the ability to cut and paste and the new search option. I’m excited about the idea of tethering, which would be the ability to use the iPhone as an air card for your laptop. While the Sprint air card I use has been perfect, having fewer devices is a good thing.
Speaking of the iPhone, time to find a good playlist and get some sleep. Check back later on for updates from Miami.
