Bad move by United Airlines


A musician  named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines.   United apparently damaged his treasured Taylor guitar  ($3500) during a flight.  Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor  guitar.  During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations  Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a  music video for youtube exposing their lack of cooperation.  The manager reportedly responded: "Good luck with that one, pal."


So Carroll posted a retaliatory video on youtube.  The video has since received nearly 6 million hits.  United Airlines reportedly contacted Carroll and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video.  Naturally his response was:  "Good luck with that one, pal."


I'm working on a trombone piece about how Albuquerque Airport made me dump a fifth of Glenn Morange.  But I need a singer.  Tom?


This does, too, have to do with conservation--the conservation of single malt.  Plus, I was on a trout-fishing trip to New Mexico.
