We're still at the gate.

Dave, was there a sign saying "Abandon hope all ye who enter here" over the jetway?

But just think of all those frequent flyer miles you're chaulking up Dave! So you can fly again!

Dave, maybe you should just start walking, then you just might get home in time for Christmas.

Why isn't John Candy alive when you need him?

i'm praying for your flight Dave!
when you're safe and sound at home, you can send good vibes to LAX tomorrow, where I'll be joining the fray.

Surley you can't be serious

I am serious and don't call me Shirley.

As Yogi Berra would say: The future ain't what it use to be!

Look at the good side---you could be Kiefer Sutherland.

Would you care to invest in my line of jumbo gyro-copters I hope to have up and running by next holiday?

well Dave, according to the official site for World Orgasm Day, you still have 12 hours before the "O" time. since you will probably still be at the gate, you might want to prepare now.

Dave - you now have enough time to do something you've always wanted to do - write a book.

This is fun. Well, not fun for Dave, of course. But tracking the real life, comic/tragic drama playing out in Atlanta is kinda fun . . . just like watching a slow speed car chase through Los Angeles.

I am thinking that if they drove the plane down the highway in the first place, it would be in Miami by now. I am sure he / she / it could get a license for that.

In the interest of science, is it time to introduce the Dave Berry cam?

Hey, Dave, you rated a quote of the day.

At least when you are President, it will be the last time you have to think about unsafe and unreliable airline travel.

Over 20 years ago, when I was working at my first professional job, a coworker named "Lois Lane" (really!), told me "to get to hell, you have to connect through Atlanta"... Naturally, I have many personal Atlanta airport stories that seared the horror of that statement into my brain forever... Two decades later her words are as true as they were then...

That's great! Dave Barry Jr and Sr have both had quotes of the day! I bet that doesn't happen often in a family.

Say hi to the gate for me, Dave!

If Dave is still at the gate, he's been there for 2 hours now.

Dave, if it's any consolation, this is officially the shortest day of the year. Happy Winter Solstice. :(

err... did u finally make it to Miami or not?

The plane must have taken off, or else Dave committed suicide by swallowing his blog-phone.

If that's the case, Guin, tomorrow's blog posts are really going to be a bunch of shi... nevermind.

Just be glad you aren't clearing customs in Atlanta. Here's the process and ISINMTU!

You take an escalator so far down into the bowels of the airport you can hear magma flowing.

You pass through immigration control.

You claim your bag at a baggage carousel.

You and your luggage go through customs.

You put your bag on a conveyor belt.

Now, since you've had access to your luggage you have to go through security AGAIN before you can return to the normal (sic) part of the airport.

You catch the train to baggage claim.

You reclaim your luggage.

I would like to be a friend of yours.I am a colledge student.
