Sometimes music really is a weapon.
Big surprise, United Airlines messed up some luggage and refused to do anything about it. But I have to give props to this guy for taking a bad situation and making something positive out of it. Bonus points for the song being pretty catchy. I wonder what would happen if that song was so popular that the record label wanted it on the in flight music station...

Unclaimed Baggage Center
is where lost luggage goes to die...and then live again. This huge warehouse buys the stuff we leave behind by the truckload, unpacks it, and then sells it to the public in an ongoing junk sale. Items range from the mundane
to the merely puzzling
to the somewhat disturbing
(this was found ON AN AIRPLANE, for Chrissakes.) The online store cannot compare to shopping there in person. And yes, it is located in THAT Scottsboro.

Bountiful American Leather Babes On The Rampage:
I was looking for umbrellas
, to shade me from the Portuguese summer sun, when, all of a sudden, I came across a cornucopia of beautiful
, classic American briefcases
. I still use the capacious, weather-worn Schlesinger case my father gave me when I was twelve. Well waaah
! Now I want a new one. The British cases
too. In fact the whole damn shop
is one big leather dream. I mean moleskines, fountain pens, books and bottles are all very nice - but real men, like real women, need truly big leather bags
to carry their whole life with them. Along with a good umbrella
, of course. One of those Malaccas with a hidden flask for whisky, perhaps.

If you've ever flown commercially in the past 16 years, you had to answer two questions about your luggage before receiving your boarding pass. Starting today, they are no longer required
since they "never prevented a bombing or hijacking."

Is this so called heighted security?
Why are we permitting people to bring on carry on luggage at all? If the airlines are unwilling to put a skymarshal on every flight then they need to arm the pilots. We really need to take much stronger steps in this area than the feeble attempts taken thus far.
