Up In the Air

Went to see the new George Clooney movie, Up In the Air, with my folks and their friends yesterday.  I thought it was a fantastic movie, one that made you think and one that definitely hit home with me.  In many ways, my life is very similar to the character played by Clooney, always on the move, living out of a suitcase, finding the most efficient ways to travel, and at times somewhat emotionless, lonely, and isolated.

But hey, it's a job.

This movie made me stop and think for a second.  My life moves fast, sometimes faster than I want it to.  My lifestyle?  Even faster.  Living for every moment like it was my last, learning from all the trials and tribulations encountered on this rollercoaster we call "life", embracing all the power that is knowledge from lessons past on and lessons learned. These are the things that make us "wiser for the time" which made me think of this song, a favorite of mine by the Black Crowes.

"Ask me, 'Why another road song?'  Funny but I bet you never left home."

Unrelated but related comment/question from Peter King today

f. I'd just like to know, as a frequent flier, how a guy passes through security twice with explosives sewn into his underwear. Don't we have animals to sniff bomb-laden underwear? Can we figure out a better system to uncover hidden bombs?
