To my main Mac Daddies in OKC

Posted on Wed, May 22, 2013 at 3:28 PM

We were stuck in three airports over the last two days trying to get home after the disaster. OKC stranded everywhere in at least two of them. It broke our hearts. We constantly fly Delta (on Delta staff pass) and we urge ALL airlines (Delta, Air Canada, American, United etc...) to give these brave folks a first class layover experience until they can get home to reunite with the people they love.

We are in Canada right now and I urge ALL foreign countries and cities to open your arms and homes and wallets if necessary to stranded in your cities. Even if you can just bring them in for a bite to eat for dinner and some relaxing fun. This is the time when good cities like Halifax show who they are. I urge any stranded OKC folks in Halifax NS to reach out to us here in the city. We're always up for laying an extra place at the table, friends.

Stay tough, OKC. We're all thinking of you. —Your Friendly Neighbourhood Astronaut
