From Fort Worth's Robert McKee (via Dallas Morning Views' Rod Dreher) comes this seven-minute video -- a short film, really, to which I give two thumbs up -- documenting his seven-hour sit on the the JFK Airport tarmac two days back. Seems Delta just didn't want to get McKee and Dreher and the rest of Flight 6499 back to Dallas-Fort Worth International. Why not? Watch. And thank God it wasn't you. Not yet, anyway. --Robert Wilonsky
