Wronged Side of the Tracks?

This is the story of a sad, subtle way in which evil removes simple pleasures from our lives. I know a guy who has a detailed log of every commercial plane he's ever been around: "N" number, aircraft type, livery, destination, duration. I suspect he's a lot more careful about when he records info in it. And I used to take aeronautical charts with me once in a while, and estimate course, speed, time of arrival, etc--practice navigation, in other words. It used to attract the interest of small kids in the area of my seat, and I got to teach them a little of a skill they didn't know about. I haven't dared since 9/11.
