Thanks, MAB,


I've got a travel bug since venturing onto aircraft several times in the last few years but am worried about going overseas, not knowing when Trump/Russia will stage the coup. I've signed so many anti-Trump petitions.

Hope I get to go to Philly next week. Depends on workload. They let me back in last October without a hitch. When the agent asked me if I'd spent more than $800, I laughed so hard that he laughed too and let me through.
