Shanghai, China - Day 1 - Travel
I arrived at Chicago O'Hare International Airport at 5:30am on Saturday, September 4th. I couldn't find the really cheap lot F (the signs were bad, it was dark, and I was tired) so I ended up parking in longterm lot E. It was 55 degrees outside, so I froze as I walked to the tram to bring me to the gates. I went to the Continental checkin area just to find out that my flight is *technically* operated by United airlines, so I had to get back in the tram and head to another terminal. Frustrating.

TSA Enables Passengers to Go at Their Own Pace - In Salt Lake, the TSA is using the familiar downhill-skiing symbols to pipe travelers with different experience levels in different lines. The green circle would be perfect for the girl that was in front of me last time I flew who asked why she had to remove her MP3 player from her pocket when she went through the metal detector.

Magic Highway USA - Watch this clip. It's a riot. It's Walt Disney's prediction of the future of transportation. Some of the items have actually made it, like the rear-view-mirror camera... and others... like the nuclear powered car... have not. I love these clips though. But now, where is our sense of wonder of the future? The clip even features a cameo by his house of the future. I want to go back to EPCOT.
