Alison Luterman: “On a cross-country airplane trip (Jet Blue) I lugged my usual complement of five serious books—no Kindle for me!—and then spent most of the flight staring dumbly at the little miniature television sets the airline thoughtfully provides each passenger. Since I don’t have TV at home, I am especially caught by reality shows, and since I had gotten (re)-married at age 50 the year before (wearing a vintage blush-colored tea-length dress) I was especially caught by Say Yes to the Dress.” (website)
