11/19/09 — I’m back home in Oregon, unpacked, and my desk finally cleared. The flight from Nebraska was uneventful, except for the repeated kindness shown to me with my arm in a sling. I never once had to ask for help putting my bag in the overhead bin. Someone would just jump up and say, "Here, let me help you with that." Anyone who is feeling pessimistic about the human race, I’m here to tell you that are lots of very nice people out there!
