I pity Dave Crenshaw.
He’s going to be a featured speaker at LTB 2014 and will be flying into JFK from far-flung Utah.
The man will spend five hours sitting in a narrow economy-class seat surrounded by violent turbulence, screaming babies and frazzled parents. He’ll then be forced to take off his shoes and socks while passing through TSA security as a group of giggling Japanese tourists look on gleefully. He will cap off his ordeal by dragging a bulky American Tourister suitcase through a maze of endless terminals and hallways in search of the elusive Budget Rent-A-Car desk.
But that’s not why he’s earned my sympathy.
