    On a Plane / Apr 05, 2001

    Do you ever get that eery sense that the best of you is going to waste, yet all you can do is sit there straining to get a better view of the ongoing carnage that is your life. I mean, you are not getting any younger, especially any younger looking, and your brain cells are...
