So many questions in this picture. Where is that jet headed? Who’s on it? Are they visiting grandchildren? Going on their honeymoon? Desperately hoping to find a lifesaving cure at one of the country’s most renowned medical centers? Taking their first trip outside the United States?

Or—nah. It’s probably just a bunch of tired business folks heading to Cleveland for another week of gladhanding. Boy, that just sucked all the romance right out of it, didn’t it?
