I’m at Seatac airport for my flight out to Hong Kong with a stop in Seoul. The Asiana Airlines sign offers good guidance as far as what NOT to pack in one’s checked luggage. Stuff in there get broken (and stolen!). And airlines are still leery of lithium ion batteries ever since Dell and Apple Computer announced large recalls of laptop batteries in the summer of 2006, followed by Toshiba and Lenovo. They are a fire hazard !
Local news of yesterday’s voting is that the Alaska Way Viaduct’s tunnel replacement is to proceed. (I voted for it. Yes, it will cost money but the viaduct replacement has been debated for 10 years! Move on!).
