"I thought of the clean linens at your table, the shining knives and the flames of the candles, and I could not stomach it."

Currently in Bethesda, MD, at the Holiday Inn where Small Press Expo will start tomorrow. I flew through Houston, and as I dragged my carry-on through the terminal, I looked out the window and saw the terrible, slow, long line of people waiting outside the entrance, hoping for a spot on a plane that could take them away, anywhere.

The seat in front of the man sitting next to me on the plane out of Houston was empty, which puzzled everyone.
