I just did something I pledged I would not do. I just paid $5.99 to watch television on an airplane. They threw in the headphones for free.
I paid my money because I can't get a text message in mid-air. And I – like you I suspect – want to be one of the first million or so people to know who Barack Obama picks as his running mate.
