Lost luggage is the butt of jokes here in the States although, the problem is not as bad as it once was. After 9-11, and also the nut w/ explosives in his shoes, everyone is subjected to being 'searched' their shoes removes, certain toiletries being removed, etc. And you have the radical muslim terrorists to blame (or to thank). Personally, I'd rather be searched, have bags lost than to arrive DOA.
