After a circus ring performance by Air Canada yesterday at the Toronto airport (flight cancelled, sent like cattle rushing to another gate, continual delays), I did finally arrive safe and sound in NYC, just in time to attend Hillary Clinton's Super Duper Tuesday campaign celebration.
Only somehow Bill and Hill forgot to send me my invite, so instead, I watched the campaign returns on the Times Square ticker tapes before eventually retiring to the Booth Theatre to get back in touch with my Irish roots (okay, I'm not really of Irish heritage, but I really like Guinness beer).
Judging from Conor McPherson's gripping new play "The Seafarer," that oughta be enough.
The TKTS gods smiled upon me with a front row seat, and after my soul was stirred I transitioned from familial Irish politics to those of the U.S. national kind, taking in even more information about the Super Duper Tuesday returns.
But I gotta tell ya, watching John and Wolf with all those charts, graphs, and other CNN interactive visualization stimuli after a long night of carefully listening to Irish cursing and my earlier wanderings at the Toronto Pearson airport, made my head spin on multiple axis.
