That was the year my work commute was transcontinental with every other weekend home. I made my connection from Los Angeles in Tampa with little time to spare and was barely settled before the jet launched into the stormy evening above Tampa on the way home to Tallahassee. Familiarity had dulled my fear of crashing and it was just another bus ride home. Until it wasn’t.
