So I was returning from a trip to China recently via Beijing's modern airport. Unfortunately, my experiences at New York's J.F.K. were not so pleasant. The plane was delayed because of air-traffic-control backups, I tripped and cut my knee on a broken tile in the terminal, and when I found a restroom to clean up the blood, I was confronted with a doorway blocked by bright yellow tape and the strong aroma of raw sewage. Nor were my experiences going from New York to Washington any better. I missed the train because I had to lug my bag down several broken escalators. Once I finally boarded another, it took 30 minutes for the Wi-Fi to connect. We hit a bad stretch of track, and my iPad went flying. I was late and unprepared for a board meeting (because of my broken iPad). When I finally got home, a storm had knocked out the electricity (again).
