A Wrinkle-Free Flight

Flew home today from SFO sitting across the aisle for former Secretary of State Warren Christopher. It was hard not to notice that even though it was the end of the day, Christopher was perfectly dressed without a crease or wrinkle anywhere.

It was actually the second time I've been with him on an airplane and once I saw him at the grocery store. It's a little bizarre seeing the former head diplomat of the United States pushing his cart down Aisle 7.

Several passengers recognized him on the airplane today, but I watched him as he walked undisturbed through the concourse at LAX, pulling his rollerboard with one hand and carrying his briefcase in the other.

I wonder if he realizes that four years ago from this coming Sunday the Supreme Court overturned the Florida Supreme Court and elected George Bush as president.
