TSA, not quite as "good" as when Bush was in

This morning, I'm off to Boston on family matters without the kid and wife. Makes me a bit sad, but it's for good cause. Traveling without the kid, I decided to take some crucial things to pass time in airports. Here are my unnecessary time-wasters.

1. Twinkie, Deconstructed, I might get to finish it, I'm on the fascinating leavening chapter.

2. A downloaded copy of this week's Sound Money, the best finance show on the web.

3. A K-type thermocouple with a stainless steel probe and yellow coil of wires and the USB datalogger itself, in case I have to measure a series of temperature data between -60 and 1900°F.

4. Some software I've been meaning to install.

5. My trusty 2.0 pixel Canon A20; it is a huge 6 year old relic. I love it though.

The title of the post? See item #3? I placed this in the outermost pocket of my scanned bag. A yellow coily wire and it never raised an eyebrow. I am in awe. I still have to endure the BOS check in on the other side. Should be interesting.

Hi Dave,

I could not find the 'Sound Money' podcast anywhere. Do you have link for this show?

Hey Ian!

General link is
http://marketplace.publicradio.org/

On that page is the link to podcasts from three shows:
Marketplace (to the minute?)
Marketplace morning show (daily) &
Marketplace Money (weekly)
The weekly is a great show, especially now.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for that. I will be adding this to my iTunes podcast list. I am already listening to the Market Place daily show and also the excellent Planet Money podcast.

Thanks,


Ian
