Delta's baggage handlers in SLC

    I never thought I'd be writing this because I've always been of the opinion that airline baggage handlers are some of the most ineffective people on Earth. But Delta's baggage crew in Salt Lake City came through with flying colors last night.

    When I got to SLC there was only six minutes until my connecting flight left, and in fact another connecting passenger and I had to talk the gate agent into pushing the jetway back up to the plane so we could get on.

    I figured the chances of my luggage and golf clubs getting put on my connection were about one-thousandth of 1 percent, but in fact both bags made it. I don't know how they did it, but it sure makes travel easier when your luggage isn't always trying to catch up to you.

    Maybe there really is a difference at Delta since it emerged from bankruptcy, or maybe not, but this time they done good.

    The baggage handlers are Mormons trying to recruit you by getting in your good graces! :D

    That's exactly how we roll here...

    In fact, if you look in your luggage you'll find a complimentary copy of The Book of Mormon for your reading pleasure.

    The handlers also replaced all of your Pro V1s with commemorative LaVell Edwards Slazengers.

    Finally, you should also find a copy of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's greatest hits in your garment bag.

    I thought you were going to say you will find the "sacred garment" in your garment bag.
