    Am travelling this week for an out of town wedding, need magazine/book advice for multiple flights, layovers and hanging out in a hotel room while old lady mcgee does the bridesmaid stuff. any suggestions?
    And while I hate to look like an internet dater here goes:
    I like bios, history, music, sports and humor so any suggestions in those categories is a good suggestion, long walks on the beach no needed.
    Oh and by the way, please stay away sci-fi nerds. (just kidding)

    Look above you. There's like a six gallion page books thread. My guess is you'll find something there.

    Avoid Airport '79: The Concorde at all costs. Airport '77 is somewhat interesting.

    TRIVIA: George Kennedy is the only actor to appear in all four Airport movies.

    I was hoping to go with the Marge Simpson Playboy, but it has yet to arrive on news stands.

    Come on, Airport '79 has one of the best cheesy movie lines of all time in it: "They don't call it the cockpit for nothing sweetheart."

    George Kennedy is still alive.

    Recently read Mark Bowden's "The Greatest Game Ever" about the 1959 NFL championship game and am in the first 100 pages of Michael Rosenberg's "War as They Knew It" about Hayes, Schembeckler, the counterculture at Ohio State and Michigan, Vietnam, protests, etc. I enjoyed the first and am enjoying the second.

    And George Kennedy's guest appearance on "Wings" back in the day was outstanding. Buy that on DVD or something.

    I thought you might enjoy this movie since you like history, music, and humor.

    To pass the time, I always take a spool of thread, tie it to a dollar bill, and watch people try to catch it. Lots of fun.
