Years ago I wrote an article entitled Airport Disease for Cabinet magazine. The piece, about an Iranian refugee living at the Paris airport for 14 years (more towards the end), proved bizarre enough to interest Steven Spielberg to lift the story for a film, The Terminal, starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones. I wrote another piece for The New York Times Magazine about "Alfred," and yet another piece for Premiere, when the film came out.
Cabinet remains one of the finest and most compelling magazines around. The newest issue is about "Fire."
