Traffic is going to suck on Thursday

AP News calendar: THURSDAY, July 22
President Bush tours the Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy in Glenview, Ill., and attends a fund-raiser in Winnetka, Ill.

My Republican buddy pings me about this today and asks if I want to go? Gee, I was already planning a trip to Costco in Glenview on Thursday — not like that’s gonna happen now. Do I want to be within five miles of all that security? Uh, no.

    Bush’s visit to your city really screwed up my day. I was flying home (to Boston) from Mexico City. I had a stopover at O’Hare. I was supposed to land at Logan at 7:20 PM. I got there at 1:00 AM.
    No thanks to American Airlines. After I went through customs at O’Hare and I went to confirm my next flight they said I could get on the 5:14 PM flight, but they couldn’t check my bags since it was too late. They didn’t seem to know (or wouldn’t tell me) that the 5:14 flight had already been delayed until 9:30 and the at earlier flight had been dealyed until 8:00. So I had to hang out for several hours while hauling my suitcase with me.
    On a related note, I recommend a visit to Mexico city as long as you have a high theshold for crowds and crazy traffic. There are lots of interesting sites to see in and around the city. You get a lot for your money, too.
