"One of the advantages of my line of work was that whenever I reached a distant destination, I had to run off the plane and get to work immediately. Generally I was going on the air a few hours later, often in the middle of the night from a remote airfield in Iraq, or a backstreet in Kabul, or some hellhole such as Mogadishu. What I quickly learned is that adrenaline is the best drug for jet lag." - Tom Brokaw, veteran NBC reporter and anchor
