zzbottom picked me up at BOS Logan Airport this morning, fed me breakfast at his place, and then I hung out for several hours at his auction shop, before taking the commuter rail into the city core, and then the T to Davis Square. Thanks Paulo! It looks like the North Station refurb is finally finished. They were just starting it when I moved out of Boston in `99, and it still wasn't done the last time I went thru it, last year I think.
I forgot to take my high quality letter opener off my keyring last night, and the TSA found it in my backpack and confiscated it. F'wads. The TSA goon seemed actually hurt and defensive when I said "I guess it's your knife, now." I will always consider their agency a sick joke and their staff to be, at best, wastes of perfectly good air.
I flew my "usual" from SEA to BOS, Alaska Airlines redeye. My own experience for that airline is they consistently suck the least for longer haul flights. Every time I've flown a cheap ticket on a "big name" carrier in the last decade plus, I've regretted it. So whenever I can, I fly either Alaska, or Southwest.
