 While on an airplane across the Midwest, I finished reading a magazine that I’d been saving for this quiet time to complete.  Magazines are a great distraction from the seemingly endless hours on a plane sitting next to strangers.  “A bus in the sky” is how I think of airplanes.  This airplane u...
