Dear patient readers,
My host Richard is being a good sport about my transformation into The Man Who Came to Dinner thanks to airport closures in London. Since he is a glider, he is also better able than most to assess the likelihood of my returning to NYC, at least via Heathrow, as now scheduled (for Saturday, which he deems as possible. Of course, that begs the question of whether the equipment and a crew will also be available).
