On tour, day 1: Columbus day (10/10). There’s something pathetic about waiting 5 extra hours in your own airport. Somehow waiting in distant airports is more dignified: at least you’ve moved. But given that the entire radar system in boston was down, travel was a bad idea all around: I didn’t protest. I briefly considered flying into NYC and driving up, but the math didn’t work out. I had faith (perhaps blind) in the unkown Boston radar mechanics which worked out. I arrived at the swanky Hotel marlowe near midnight (a splurge to compensate for nights on friends couches), and prayed to the book tour gods for better luck on the rest of my 10 day, 9 lecture trip.
