Via Dave Carroll: “{we} began our week-long-tour of Nebraska by flying United Airlines from Halifax to Omaha, by way of Chicago. Upon landing and waiting to deplane, a woman sitting behind me cried out: ‘My god they’re throwing guitars out there.'” After several laps around United’s bureaucratic treadmill, Dave decided to set the story to verse and video (see below).
