Flying on September 11: just like any other day.

One of the most popular and lively conversation topics among computer science researchers: the comparative qualities of various airports. Many people would think we're dreadful snobs showing off our travels, but that's not the reason: we're simply disconnected from the reality of a world in which, for many, flying is still a very rare treat. When I am not in the company of fellow academics, I have learnt to refrain from complaining about the unpleasantness of air travel; in fact, best to avoid mentions of air travel altogether.
