Seated and can relax a bit. Northwest Airlines did a great job of hustling everyone through quickly. There was a person at the gate shouting out departure gates, making my tun tio gate 45 from 24 a little less stressful.

A BloggerCon attendee question: did anyone find a Boston guide book? I lost it sometime after 5PM on Saturday.

On the right flight barely. Lots of luck was key.

Ddelayed still. I'm assuming I'm going to miss my connecting flight to KC. Let's hope that I can get a free ticket out of the deal.

We are 35 minutes late so far. My layover is an hour. Do the math and that equals a long day.

Delayed for 15 minutes on the ground at Logan in Boston. "Failed cargo door actuator arm" is the culprit. I wonder what the percentage of on time departures are marred my mechanical issues that don't affect flight ops?

I'll make my connecting flight--with maybe 15 minutes to spare.

Heading home

Rail Against the Machine

Coming to you this morning from the 6:21 a.m. train, leaving South Acton for the airport. Reading the schedule from the MBTA website gave me the tips for this trip--commuter rail to North Station, Orange line to State, Blue line to the Airport. I allowed 10 minutes of waiting for trains since they are running 5 minutes apart and that's the worst case scenario.

I had to say an abbreviated goodbye to Jason this morning. We had a little time on the way to the tation, but our conversation wandered. By the time we were at the station, the train was arriving, so I'll take a moment to embarrass him here. Jason is a good man and we should all be so lucky as to know someone like him.

Today is Patriot Day in Boston. It's treated like a national holiday here, but I don't know the history. Our conductor is wearing a tie with a flag motif. Itmakes me smile and remember how fortunate I am to live in America.

More from Detroit...
