Brownsville Airport has free Wi-Fi

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.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
