Stolen Luggage Found in Houston Trash Bin

Um, this bothers me. A LOT. According to this story found in the
Seattle Times, 68 suitcases which were taken from George Bush
International Airport were found outside of a pet store dumpster in
Houston earlier this week. The stolen baggage apparently came from
nine different airlines and from destinations such as France, UAE,
and domestic locations. Investigators are trying to determine now if
it was an inside job or if some punks walked into baggage claim and
casually walked off with bags without anyone noticing. Imagine
waiting for your bag to come around the carousel when somebody has
already successfully snagged your panties, boxers, toothpaste,
Craisins, jewelry and other novelty items for their own personal
pleasure. Ugh!

News like this really stinks to hear considering how much paper is
wasted printing your baggage claim tickets and no one is ever there
to check. I think I've been checked only once in all my travels
before walking off with my bags. That's pretty sad folks. If you're
heading through Houston it might be time to start making a mad dash
to the claim area or just check-in nothing and buy when you arrive.
