This was an obvious solution to the problem. I am actually surprised it wasn’t rolled out 10 years ago!
Boarding a plane has dramatically changed because of the carry-on crunch. Gate agents wrest bags from passengers in late boarding groups to tag them for checking. Some airlines have baggage tag printers at gates for all the bags that don’t fit in overhead bins. And flights get delayed when too many passengers can’t find room for their bags.
Some passengers feel pressured into paying fees for early boarding just so they won’t be forced to check bags.
Mr. Walton, manager of new features on 737 interiors, thought Boeing had to come up with something dramatically bigger.

“Once again the Benghazi Committee uncovers information that should already be part of the public record but was not made available to the American people or congressional investigators,” said Gowdy, R-S.C. “These emails should have been part of the public record when Secretary Clinton left office and at a bare minimum included when the State Department released Clinton’s self-selected records on Libya.

The Associated Press is saying that they have lost emails from 5 more employees at the IRS. Is this old news? I thought we heard that no emails were truly lost because everything was completely backed up.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The IRS says it has lost emails from five more workers who are part of congressional investigations into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax exempt status.
The tax agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings.
A Pentagon report requested by President Obama on the conditions at the Guantánamo Bay detention center concluded that the prison complies with the humane-treatment requirements of the Geneva Conventions.
Traditionally, the posts on this site have been formatted with RANT! in the title and the content has included me yelling (all caps) that something needs to get fixed. I will still do these types of posts in the future but I want to expand the scope a little and will now just have my random thoughts on a variety of topics. The rants will continue as needed and you can find them in the RANTS category.
