April 24 New Yorker

Just a mention that the current issue of the New Yorker has a number of great articles around the theme of “Journeys.” Especially fantastic is Anthony Lane’s European Journal contribution on low-cost air travel. It’s literally littered with witty asides that resonate with anyone who gets on a plane more than once a year. I was laughing out loud the whole time.
The article is not on the web, and the contents page doesn’t have a dedicated URL, so no links to all that.
One thing that is online is editor David Remnick’s comment on Al Gore, with which I wholeheartedly agree.
