We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Many years back the plane I took into Port of Spain in Trinidad got stuck in the mud off the runway, delaying for 1-2 hours our arrival at the terminal. Icing on the cake after being delayed in Atlanta for several hours due to a winter storm.
Airports in the mountains can be problematic. Such as Guatemala City, which often features storms on entry, to the extent that I came to expect a landing associated with a vigorous shaking. La Paz has some runways near the top of a cliff. Come to think of it, I can come up with a lot of reasons for drinking on international flights.
