Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

10am flight cancelled. Got on the 2pm flight. Spent the intervening time at an airport that qualifies as "international" only because of occasional flights to Toronto reading, sort-of napping and listening to Christmas music that wasn't as annoying as it could have been. Thankfully the rotation was over an hour long.

But what was most amazing were the repeated requests that passengers return to the security checkpoint to pick up shoes that they had left behind. Umbrellas I can understand easily. Laptops are more tragic, though similarly understandable. But shoes? How do you just walk off without your shoe? More amazing are the people who seem to walk off with one shoe but not the other, though this could be the TSA employees not bothering to look around for a mate.

The women in Starbucks aprons would sell me a bagel with cream cheese, but had no answers. They weren't in fact even that interested in the question, prefering to discuss the woman who recently tried to put a baby through the x-ray machine at another airport. I told them I saw a woman put a cat through an x-ray machine once. They were unimpressed.
