This morning I was talking to James, who expressed shock at my response to his response about the biplane. Now, several of you are reading this, and thinking, "His response? I thought you were responding to me!" It isn't so. James was just one of a surprising number of people who were running around, waving their arms in the air, assuring me that I didn't want to own an airplane.
So, if you felt singled out, I apologize — you're actually in the good company of a number of concerned and thoughtful people who unexpectedly reponded en masse and in kind.
