I haven't been on a plane in a while, so I thought I'd see if the world has made any big advances in that issue where you arrive 15 minutes early and then spend 45 minutes waiting for a gate. Also, I'm headed to D.C. to connect with my Axios colleagues.

Meanwhile, if you're a student or young professional in New York, you can have a drink with Axios tomorrow evening, Dec. 5. Free drinks, snacks, networking and a conversation about the future of news and media is worthy of your time. Bring a friend and RSVP here.
