‘On the ground’

A marvelous observation from the prominent Macintosh developer Brent Simmons:

“I was on the ground in Indianapolis…”

I love it when TV People — newscasters, analysts, politicians — say they were “on the ground” somewhere.

It’s a good and welcome reminder that they normally live in the clouds, in heaven, up with the angels. Not on the ground with us, where things are mysterious and messy.

Gosh they’re lucky. Good and lucky.
