I wrote this post from the floor of the Atlanta airport, where I spent the better part of last Thursday night.  It wouldn’t be so bad, except that I spent the better part of the day stuck in the Nashville airport.  (Sidenote:  it’s not a bad place to be stuck.  A plate of BBQ, turnip greens, fresh-based rolls with live country music . . . but I digress.)  Business travel, especially during a rough weather week, is not fun.  More on my efforts to get home in a minute.
