I never made it home last night. After five hours in the Portland airport, we finally left for Chicago (my layover before my final destination of Baltimore). The first flight was running late. But they said that would be okay. They told me they would reroute me to another flight if I wouldn't make my connection. They didn't. So, I didn't.

Dec. 21, 1988 was the day the airport lounge was transformed from an opulent inner sanctum for the privileged first class passenger to an urbane chamber of horrors for the next of kin. As an airline agent, inner strength and numbness enabled me to carry out my duties without falling apart as I confirmed these families' worst nightmare.
