A personal note

I just returned from three days in Puerto Rico for a work conference. Beautiful place with fantastic vistas on the north coast. I imagine that the blue of their part of the Caribbean is as beautiful as the blue that surrounds our sad island to the west of them. I would also like to praise an institution that gets bashed very often, and, I think, unjustifiably so: Miami International Airport. MIA is, of all the airports I've used, the best. The new amenities in the American Airlines concourse are second to none -- the place is very well run. My two forays there this weekend were trouble-free and pleasant. Kudos to all.

    Some curmudgeon you are. Couldn't you talk about the high crime rate over there? Sheesh.

    I happen to travel back & forth to MIA about 4-5 times a year and always dread it, especially the departure on weekdays when the mulas are boarding their flight to Havana. However, I do agree that the new AA concourse is nice; most concourses at the airport are crowded, but the new one has ample "leg" room. Maybe the spring break rush is over and things are quieter; but for the new concourse, things are usually wild. I think the airport is not big enough for the amount of traffic it handles; and it has no room to grow, unfortunately.
