George Orwell was an amazing visionary. Just spent a few hours doing "correct speak" at the State Department getting a passport expanded. Although I will say, even the security guards there were polite and "human". Hanging at Atlanta airport now.. will do it again as I fade through security un-noticed. Although having a Sky Priority Pre-Check ticket allows me to use the pro-line. Basically same thing without strollers and frat kids, everyone doing their part to make it through the experience as smoothly as possible.

if you haven't found it yet, ATL has a neat african rock exhibit in the walkway by the first train station, between T & A (snicker) I believe. I always enjoy a couple of minutes wandering through it when I have to travel there.
