Planning a trip? Don't take Delta Airlines. We got to the airport 40 minutes before the scheduled take-off time and were told that the cut-off was 45 minutes to check baggage, and that we'd have to book a later flight - and pay an extra $100. Nowhere on any web page was there any notice of this; you'd think there would be given that it's so important. And we've never heard of this requirement. Naturally the Delta staff assure us that it's always been in place and everyone knows of it.
So, my wife got on the blower to Delta and, after much hassle, got the $100 surcharge waived and we arrived. (Our original flight was direct - with the later flights we had a layover.) There WILL be a well-worded letter to Delta Corporate about this. But in the meantime there's this Internet anti-endorsement: book with JetBlue or American Airlines, not Delta.
I got to watch that terrorist sent back to Libya over my morning Wheaties; I am so disappointed with Scotland. Somebody needs to reach up under that judge's kilt and find out what's under there. This terrorist is going home to a hero's welcome in a terrorist state. Some justice. As far as I'm concerned, allowing the guy to live eight years in prison was compassionate. Too bad he wasn't tried in Texas or Virginia.
Well, that's enough bile from me. Now it's time to visit kids and friends, etc. Tonight we go see a Plan 9 From Outer Space showing with the guys from Mystery Science Fiction 3000 thing. (I'm not totally sure what it is.)
And I've been enjoying listening to Professor Robert Greenberg lectures about Tchaikovsky. Did you know he enjoyed dressing up in drag? And so did fellow homosexual composer Camille Saint-Saens? Wow.
