Beverly Beckham: The Donner Party ain't got nothin' on me

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 17, 2007 09:12 AM



Beverly's trying to be Zen about it, but the truth is, she's down on air travel. Which is tough because her husband is in the travel business.

How bad has it become? Well, without ruining the suspense, let's just say she's invoking the memory of the ill-fated Donner Party that got trapped in a snowbound pass the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1846 and had to resort to cannibalism to survive.

Listen to Beverly's column and more about the purgatory that is modern air travel in the latest installment of her podcast, "Coffee with Beverly."
