"...California drivers know how to yield and merge..."

This is a little off topic, but YOU'R KIDDING, RIGHT???

As for TSA and bags, last time we flew (and we don't do it often) they cut the zipties off of all our bags, left their little calling card notice in one bag out of three, and didn't replace the zipties. I was under the impression that they were supposed to replace zips if you had them on your stuff...

I thought they would replace those too. If you get TSA locks they will put those back on. And no, I wasn't kidding. California drivers, at least in the Bay Area where we lived for years, are vastly more courteous than Denver drivers. No comparison.

Every place in the world has different "protocols" for driving, and none is better than the other. I have driven in Los Angeles and Manahattan. You see surprisingly few accidents in Manhattan considering how busy it is - but it is a completely different style that L.A.

But let's not hijack the thread.

TSA is pretty inconsistent - we gave up using the locks.
