An ongoing photographic inquiry.

Hey, James Fallows! You're the national correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly. You wrote Free Flight: From Airline Hell to a New Age of Travel and also Breaking the News: How the Media Undermine American Democracy. Are you going to the World Economic Forum, familiarly known as "Davos," when it meets Jan. 31-Feb. 4 in New York City?

No, Chatterbox.

Why not?

Too busy! Also, the one time I did go, I ended up yelling at some globalist fathead on a panel. Somehow my invitations got lost after that.

Whatcha gonna do instead?

Got to finish one article today, then going to Fort Worth over the weekend to do interviews for another one. And let's not forget the Super Bowl.

That sounds a lot more important!

Chatterbox will spend the next few days inviting prominent thinkers and doers in Washington to Don the Shirt. Are you too busy for Davos? Chatterbox is!
