0430 hours is a damned unnatural time for an alarum clock to go off, that's all I'm saying.
Also, the government has taken almost all of the dignity and glamor out of flying. For one thing, it doesn't matter if everybody else on the plane got all dressed up to go flying, you've already seen all their bunions and hammertoes.
For another, do you know how stupid you'd look O.J.'ing through the airport, vaulting chairs and fellow travellers, with a pair of empty blue nitrile gloves fluttering from your beltline and a bunch of TSA mall ninjas puffing along in your wake?
