In the airport

Corned beef on rye for dinner. 2 hours in Chicago's O'Hare airport is just about long enough to sit and people watch. The airport now has free wi-fi and there are laptops out everywhere. On the plane from Manchester, I watched Brian Greene talk about super-string theory. Stephen Hawken did a presentation on expanding universe...He thinks offering alien-abduction insurance is a better bet than us humans making it another thousand years without being aliens ourselves. Then Jane Goodall talked about how much animals are like us and we are being beastly to our world. All this was on my iPhone via podcasts from TED. Wow! What an amazing world. Now my flight to San Francisco is oversold. What a world.
