I'm reposting this blog due to recent news of airplanes and children.
(No, this doens't mean I've run out of blogs to post. I've got more...oh yes...I do.)
Boy On A Plane
by Lupe Fernandez
At 5:45am, I board Delta Air Lines flight 3248 at McAllen Airport. A week of humid, sweaty research in Texas for a memoir manuscript about my father is over. The twin jet engine plane is cool and dry, not sticky and exhausting like the Rio Grande Valley weather in May. As I relax in the aisle seat, I hear a boy cry at the front access door.
