Spent the day travelling to Fort Lauderdale for the conference. While the travelling wasn’t too bad, there was a very frustrating moment. I spent an hour-and-a-half in the Delta check-in lines, and was then told I could not check my luggage. As a result, I was forced to surrender a precious pocket knife, a 20-year-old Navy souvenir, at the security checkpoint. I was, and still am, pretty angry.
