How one New York Times reporter learned to love George Bush
In today's New York Times, reporter Joe Sharkey writes about a three-hour layover at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, where he had decent ribs at Harlon's Bar-B-Q, got his shoes shined and checked e-mail at the Continental Presidents Club. "For the first time I was able to actually experience the place," he writes. His conclusion: While airline service is deteriorating, airport services are getting much better because the facilities are almost always locally owned and operated. We'll drink to that the next time we're in the airport bar at Bush.
