The Manchester article (March 2017) was very informative and transported me to this vibrant city. I visited London in 1999 as an 18-year-old graduate from high school. Although I fell short of reaching Manchester, I feel as if I have just left this city after reading American Way. My interest for Manchester came about because of Sir Alex Ferguson and the way he coached and managed the soccer club Manchester United. Although the article is not all about soccer, I feel it’s important to clarify that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola did not move from Real Madrid, as the article states, and was actually the previous manager for FC Barcelona and most recently Bayern Munich.
I appreciated several February articles that emphasize American Airline’s ongoing support of military veterans. The “Swamp Apes” python hunters story was fascinating. I wonder if the recipients of the reptiles have enough specimens yet? I couldn’t help but think of another use of these invasive species, connecting the snake story to the Miami-Wynwood revival story: How about a python taco at “Coyo” or the Burmese serpentine at the “Asian-inspired” KYU?

I cannot believe Elizabeth McCracken’s article “When others might applaud, gasp, or weep, I fall asleep” in American Way (Feb. 2017). Wow! I thought I was alone in this syndrome and I can relate 100 percent. I have been ridiculed by friends and made fun of over the years for the same thing—falling asleep in loud, noisy places and, yes, air travel, also. It only took me two hours to read the article since I kept falling asleep. Thank you, Elizabeth. At least I know I am not alone. It is comforting, in a weird way, to know it happens to others, also.
