Just received an email from a pal warning about new carry-on restrictions. Led to a thought:
Friends: "Continental and United must limit their carryon to a handful of "essentials" placed in a baggie before boarding (read: wallet, credit cards, glasses without cases, clearly-labeled prescription medication), no laptops, no iPods, no purses, everything else must be checked. ..."
DEAREST __________: SORRY-ANGRY ABOUT TERRORISTS. BUT MAYBE IT WOULD DO US ALL GOOD: SIT QUIETLY. CONTEMPLATE. I READ ONCE ABOUT A JAPANESE CEO WHO DEVOTED HIS LOOOOOONG FLIGHTS TO WRITING HAIKU. Hmmmmmm!
