    Seeing a former United States Senator from Florida get on our plane.  He had an armload of newspapers with him and much to my shock, he sat in the cattle car seats with the rest of us, even though he could easily afford first class.  Seeing my US Senator seated in the regular seats made a huge impression on me as a constituent.
