  1. Regarding the stolen money, the article says: ” empty your pockets, putting your watch, your wallet and your cell phone into one of those giant plastic tubs”.

    Now, call me paranoid (or not, based on the article) but I never do that. All that stuff goes into a zipped & secured pocket in my carry-on, to return to my pockets after I’m through security. Now, apparently you can’t trust airline employees, but I’ve always be of the mind that it’s not smart to tempt the people working for the TSA, either.

  2. Guys who propose in public should be kicked in the balls. Repeatedly. By an elephant.

  3. Today’s blog headline “Airlines Steal from Passengers” is misleading. The reality is that two individuals who happen to work for airlines stole from passengers.
