Leaving On A Jet Plane, Unless I’m On The No Fly List

I am leaving today for a short trip to my hometown, so I may not be blogging much (or at all) until I get back on Tuesday.  Internet access is spotty amongst my friends and family and I’m not sure I want to brave the Starbucks, besides, I may end up having too much fun and the break might do me good.  I’m taking the trip because my best friend is being honored by the Feminist Women’s Health Center, for her hard work and activism over the years in support of a woman’s right to choose.  She is an amazing person that I am honored to call friend and who makes me proud, every day, to be a woman.  She talks the talk AND walks the walk and she’s taught me the importance of doing both.  I’m so happy to be able to share in this happy event.

I am a little paranoid though about getting on the plane.  I love to fly and I’m not concerned about terrorism, I’m just afraid they won’t let me on.  I haven’t taken a flight since I started this blog and with all the reports I’ve read about Quakers and pacifists being labeled terrorists, I’m a little concerned.  I’m trying to take comfort in the fact that my blog is too small and too insignificant to warrant any attention from Homeland Security.  I wish that wasn’t the case, and who knows, as I grow maybe they will pay me visit and put me on the No Fly List, at this point, I’d almost consider it a badge on honor.  Hmm, now I’m not sure what I’m hoping for more, an easy uneventful commuter flight to California or a great blogging opportunity if I’m denied at the gate.  I’ll keep you posted, Tuesday if it’s the former and tonight if it’s the latter.  Either way, have a nice weekend!  I will be checking in, so feel free to discuss amongst yourselves.

So Mollie, does this mean no Podcasting Liberally for you? We'd have a helluva a time replacing you (after all, it didn't get good until Episode 3, your first full episode.) You're our good luck charm!

Peter, Paul and Mary couldn't have said it better. At this time, we know that you were able to fly, and hope that your visit was as special as you wished. My liberal friends and I have the same attitude, but as the soviets had to do when they knew their own government was listening in on all their communications, we can easily overwhelm this incompetent ad-monster-ration with unlimited musings about liberal issues.

Howie--I was safe (damn it) so I guess not.

anonymous--I know you're right and I did. Thanks.

Graeme--It is nice to go home, the comfort and all that.

Rory--Thanks, luckily I didn't have to take a horse.

Enigma4ever--Unlike you, I haven't made enough waves yet, but I'll keep at it.

Will--Don't you dare replace me!

Bob--Thank you, it was a great trip but I'm ready to resume the unlimited musings about liberal issues.
