We’ve missed Jake Tapper’s quirky blog posts. He’s been doing the whole “serious journalist” thing for far too long.
So we were relieved to read this from Tapper’s “Political Punch“:
Once again, I report to you — regrettably — that the US Airways militants continue to hold my beloved blue bag hostage, with no word of when they will return it or any of the other thousands of bags it has decided to kidnap.
Blue-ie was last seen on Sunday in Philadelphia, when the extremists at US Airways forced me to turn him over. They promised to return him to me in Toronto.
Two days have passed since then, with a scary computer-automated voice “named” Alex, and some poor schlub in Guatemala being the only ones to tell me that, yes, Blue-ie will return to my side some dayâ€¦though they still do not know his whereabouts.
Is he in Mosul? Brasile? A “Usual Suspects”-esque tanker?
Blue bag donations will be accepted at DeSales Street.
