Not only is everyone in the airport completely ignoring a sitting US Conressman filming and broadcasting live from an airport, he almost gets run over by a Continental buggy! So real, so interesting….

You know an airline is hip when the guy taking your boarding pass greets you: “What’s up, boss?” - Go Virgin America!
Heading to Union Station en route to BWI and eventually LA. Need to buy some new headphones for the iPod, too. And read!!
