Sorry for the quietude lately—I was at the American Medical Association's Task Force on Continuing Medical Education/Industry Collaboration in Baltimore all week, then today was out trying to learn how to use our new publishing software. Lots to say, just no time to say it. I'll try to catch up with you all soon.
In the meantime, one thing I love about air travel is the waiting. No, seriously. I was just hanging out at the Baltimore airport waiting for my delayed flight to arrive and this kid came over and started chatting. A really cool kid, probably around 21 years old. We covered philosophy, religion, the pharmaceutical industry, world travel, and why girls always break guys' hearts in the half hour before he had to catch his flight. Then I got to finish my book, and eat a cookie with M&Ms that I never would have bought in real life. In that 'tweener airport time, I've noticed the conversations are better (maybe because you know they won't have to stretch to fill an entire flight) and calories don't count.
Scott, if you ever read this, safe travels, and I hope to bump into you again one of these days!
