Believe it or not, I am writing this blog post inside an airplane! We left the terminal at New York's La Guardia Airport about an hour ago, and now -- thanks to the miracle of modern technology -- we are sitting about 100 yards from the terminal, with our engines turned off to save power. The pilot has assured us that we either will or not be moving again soon, or possibly not so soon. He did not sound too certain about it.
UPDATE: We finally took off and -- this is the best part -- landed at our destination.
