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. As I was heading back to my car, I looked up and saw a large airplane flying low overhead. 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.
