Go directly to Atlanta, do not pass Go, do not collect $200

Well, I landed on time in Atlanta. My plane out has not yet arrived, will be delayed at least an hour, and has gone through three gate changes. I passed several large crowds in the concourse that burst into sudden applause -- I presume because a late aircraft was finally cleared for boarding.

Man, I hate flying through Atlanta. I'd rather fly through Chicago O'Hare any day.

P.S. The airport TV is all-CNN all-the-time. Which I suppose makes sense, since CNN is based here. I'm sure that the waiting rooms in Hell only play Rosie O'Donnell reruns.
