Sorry to intervene in our round the clock coverage of why 3rd parties are silly to ask a personal question.
I am supposed to give a talk at Macalester College in Minnesota on Thursday. One slight problem–the gigantic hurricane/nor’easter/Hades’ fury/apocalypse that is going to hit on Tuesday, when I am supposed to fly out. Even better, I am connecting in Philadelphia which looks like might it get the brunt of this.
Should I call US Air now and try to get them to reschedule me? I can fly out Wednesday and still make the talk, for whatever that’s worth. What travel options do I have? Does it help to try and deal with this early? Obviously I don’t want to get charged for changing my reservation. Thoughts?
Figure some of you are a lot more experienced with this sort of thing than I am.
And now back to noting that people who say that there’s no substantive difference between Obama and Romney are not to be taken seriously.
….Thanks to the beneficent corporate overlords at US Air, I was able to move my flight to Sunday at no charge. Minnesotans’ right to hear me pontificate about logging unions cannot be denied!
