How amazing is this? The quaint little airport in Brownsville has free Wi-Fi, and it looks like it’s part of a free citywide Wi-Fi service. This airport has only one gate, and is serviced by Continental ExpressJets (i.e. if you have a seat assignment higher than 14 you have to hold on the tailfin during flight). The planes don’t have room for wheel luggage so you have to gate-check them. And yet the Brownsville airport has free Wi-Fi. Truly astonishing.
So I’m sitting here waiting to take a plane to Houston doing some work and catching up on emails. When I get to Houston I’ll transfer to another plane that will take me back to New Orleans, a city where the government can’t even pick up the debris on Canal Street or make the traffic lights work in the part of the city that is mostly inhabited. Sigh.
