The gang is back from Portland, ME and for once, there are no horror stories to share about the affiliate or the audience at the Las Vegas-style Show. It seems that, with the exception of a dick working in the wholesale parts department at Maine Mall Motors, the people of Portland are fine, upstanding folk. I was worried that this would be a boring show -- just Sopranos recaps and the miscellaneous Tom Gavin call. Thank god for Charlie Broyhill and the incompetence of Virgin Atlantic Airlines! Instead of the telling of the "Buzz Show" that we've come to love, in this episode we hear about what has to be the worst birthday ever as Don, Buzz, Robb and Charlie experience the trip from hell. Golden Boy Mike O'Meara, of course, had no problem on his return trip. As I listened to Don account of Charlie screaming at the Logan Airport security guy, I had a tug of nostagia for those wonderful days of pre-9/11 travel. Good times.
