  1. Re; Uber and Gov’t travelers. I just got reimbursed for taking Uber to DCA a couple weeks ago to fly to our office in KC. The expense category was taxi, but the receipt was clearly a printout of the Uber receipt. Drive got 5 Stars (no tip) 🙂

  2. Although you didn’t explicitly state it, you are implying that the TSA is somehow connected to the Somali war criminal. I dislike the TSA as much (or more) than you do, but this is misleading, since he is an airport security guard, not a TSA employee.

  3. I don’t appreciate the click-bait “checked baggage” subject in your daily email. It is mildly humorous but not after two clicks and page loads — from email to summary to story — only to find it is a minor joke on reddit.
    You can’t waste our time like this and expect us to value your emails.
