    So long as the airlines and DHS are going to start actually doing an inventory, and then reimbursing me the actual value of what is in my bag, I’ll be glad to check my laptop. I seriously doubt they are going to care about losing luggage on a regular basis than they do today, however, nor are they going to be willing to actually pay for what they have lost.
