On the heels of my First Class upgrade on the way to New Hampshire, I was feeling pretty good about myself. I suppose it’s easy to think more highly of yourself than you ought to when you get the posh treatment a few times.

Without thinking much about it, I selected that option, and did the same for the Detroit-Manchester leg of the trip. (more…)

There are things that, even when you see them with your own eyes, you can’t believe. On Wednesday, I was driving down Main Street in Concord, NH.
