My colleague Kelly Bennett is allowing me to drop in to Survival for a moment to direct you to some interesting bits of information.

First of all, Kelly mentioned in her story today that Delora Snow, the flight attendant she profiled for People at Work, has a daughter who recently competed in the Olympic Games in Beijing.

By utter coincidence, I had photographed her daughter several months earlier for this column by Tom Shanahan. And the coincidences went on and on. The family is from Escondido, where I grew up, and Tiffany was, at the time we shot this story, playing field hockey in New Zealand, where I was born.

On a somewhat related note, I wanted to direct you to the video I put together about Snow’s job as a flight attendant. If you haven’t already had the chance to check it out, you can see it below. If you have any feedback, fell free to e-mail me at Of course, you can check out all the stories from the People at Work series, as well as all the video and slideshows, on our new People at Work archive page.
