An anecdote

Last Thursday I stopped at the toll road oasis at Des Plaines, Illinois, mostly to get a few minutes reprieve from the heavy traffic and heavy rain (and hail!) that were making driving rather unpleasant.

It seemed much too low given how far we were from O'Hare, and so I tried to get a closer look and see what company it belonged to. I looked and saw a white bottom and a light blue top, and on the tail fin was an American flag. With a holy shit, I realized I was seeing Air Force One buzzing the air before Obama touched down to go on the stump. It was a highlight of the trip, certainly.
