  1. I can really relate to Phil’s problem. A few years ago when visiting in Buffalo, New York, my purse containing my wallet with ID was stolen. I had to fly back to Oklahoma a few days later, and was forced to secure a notorized statement from someone at the Coast Guard, where my son-in-law worked, as to my identity.

    Fortunately the security people at the airport were very nice. That was back in the good old days when people treated you like a human being.
