Flying into California for my grandson’s baptism, I had to connect through LAX. This was on Friday, the day of the shootings at that airport. That happened in the morning. My plane was coming in that afternoon. We heard about the shootings just before we started to board. The plane had DirectTV if you wanted to pay for it, so to see what we were getting into, I sprung for it and watched the news unfold. After the chaos of the morning, things had settled down by the time we landed. Flights were coming and going, though they were terribly backed up all through the day, and my connecting flight was cancelled. Anyway, I finally caught a flight out and made it to my destination. Still, it was sobering to fly into a crime scene like that. Things on the news happen to real people, just like us, and some of the bad things we see on TV could happen to us. The point is obvious, of course, but still. . . .
