Evidently, not everyone takes to the idea at first, but, as with so many things, once tried it is found to be immensely rewarding and enjoyable. You'll have to watch the video, but I am reminded of what I have heard about Irish pubs--which are not "bars," exactly, but community gathering places. It is obvious how this would forge and strengthen bonds of friendship and caring and remind people of what they have in common, instead of the opposite.
This is just a small thing, happening in an airport, but it has exciting potential. Imagine it at Stewart Airport! Or, actually, anywhere!
