So, I’m traveling to Toronto for the annual pilgrimage to the homeland for the holidays. This time, for the first time in probably 6-7 years, my travel plans are threatened by winter weather.
The forecast is for snow. Again. But I think that the folks at Lester Pearson International know how to handle snow. Since I’m flying direct, I’m hoping that’s enough to insure safe passage.
Just in case, I have three pieces of reading material to keep me company. A novel, a magazine and a non-fiction tome.
The novel is “Next”, by the lamentably late Michael Crichton. I’m sad to see a Renaissance man’s untimely departure. Just started. Review to follow.
The magazine is Wired, January 2009. An article on whether we should actually look for a cure for cancer, or simply look for ways to find it faster, caught my eye. There’s an article about an individual aircraft too; the Icon A5. Looking forward to relative fluff there..
The non-fiction tome is, “Spin-Free Economics“, by Nariman Behravesh. So far, a partisan-free look at economic issues with a forward that chides both sides for perpetrating myths to their own ends. Looking forward to delving further.
More to follow..
If my eyes tire, and the trip wears on, I have my trusty iPod loaded with NPR shows to keep me stimulated.
Yeah, I have music too.
