This past week, I was in the San Francisco Airport and looking for a place for my kids to take a nap. It had been a long day, and we were in the middle of a long lay-over.

In his autobiography, Benjamin Franklin tells the story of meeting Cotton Mather, the famous New England preacher, at his home. And, as they were leaving through a room with a low ceiling, Mather shouted "Stoop! Stoop!". But it was too late.
