Tell that loudmouth to shut up

Just when I thought that the the most boring writing in the world was an airport horror story.... "They lost my luggage!" "I had to wait for hours!" "TSA was stupid and theywere mean to me!" *YAWN* ...I discovered something even more boring: airport horror stories masquerading as news analysis. As a close corrollary, I ask this question: who is the most tiresome person to be around while waiting for a flight? Answer: The 13 year British Airways Gold Card holder loudly kvetching about how miserable he is in the airport. The only appropriate response is the one I provide now: "put a cork in it Gramps, and ride a donkey is air travel is so miserable. No one cares about your whining."
