I'm sitting at the airport right now, and composing this blog is gonna take an excruitiatingly long time. Why? Because I'm typing it on my Blackberry instead of on my laptop. Because Gen. Mitchell Airport doesn't offer free WiFi.

I've got a few layovers between Milwaukee and Munich, so I'll see if these other airports offer free wireless. It seems like the least they can do.

If I'm expected to arrive two hours prior to departure, wouldn't it be nice to at least get a little WiFi for free? I mean, I'd consider paying their one-time fee, but I only need an hour of access. And believe me, these tickets were pricey enough.

Anyway, I'd keep on ranting, but people tell me I should try to relax while on vacation. And my thumbs are getting sore from typing on this tiny keyboard.

Andy is the president, publisher and founder of OnMilwaukee. He returned to Milwaukee in 1996 after living on the East Coast for nine years, where he wrote for The Dallas Morning News Washington Bureau and worked in the White House Office of Communications. He was also Associate Editor of The GW Hatchet, his college newspaper at The George Washington University.

Before launching in 1998 at age 23, he worked in public relations for two Milwaukee firms, most of the time daydreaming about starting his own publication.

Hobbies include running when he finds the time, fixing the rust on his '75 MGB, mowing the lawn at his cottage in the Northwoods, and making an annual pilgrimage to Phoenix for Brewers Spring Training.
