Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It's that time of the year: when Mormons on flights bound for Utah hope to run into celebrities on their way to Park City. Or sometimes it's the other way around.

Zach Braff tagged Mitt Romney in a tweet about heading back to Sundance today, and in a bit of apparent Twitter magic, he later spotted the former presidential candidate at JFK airport. He thought the odds of being on the same flight as Romney were pretty good. It turns out he was right, and that Romney is up on his pop culture references (not that we're surprised):
