Many bags look alike, so be sure to check to be certain…

Here, just in time for the summer travel season: “Is This Your Luggage?

As the anonymous operator of the site explains:

I COLLECT LOST LUGGAGE, PHOTOGRAPH IT, AND THEN TRY TO FIND THE OWNERS.

IT’S A LITTLE ODD BUT NOT AS ODD AS STAMP COLLECTING, JUST A LITTLE HARDER TO FIND STORAGE SPACE.

WHEN A BAG GETS LOST THE AIRPORT OR AIRLINE WILL STORE IT FOR A WHILE AND TRY TO FIND THE OWNER. IF THEY CAN’T IDENTIFY THE OWNER OF THE CASE THEY SEND IT TO BE AUCTIONED OFF WITH THE PROFIT GOING TO CHARITY.

I GO TO THESE AUCTIONS AND BUY THE CASES SO I CAN PHOTOGRAPH THEM FOR MY WEIRD VOYEURISTIC PASSION. THE REASON FOR THE WEB SITE? I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO TRY TO FIND THE PEOPLE WHO OWN MY SUITCASES, SO IF YOU HAVE ANY FRIENDS WHO HAVE LOST A CASE PLEASE GET THEM TO HAVE A LOOK.

One never knows…

As we rush to reunite, we might avail ourselves of a curious (but, Lord knows, welcome) convergence amidst the ever-diverging (and ever-expanding) arguments over Shakespeare and things-to-do-with-the-Bard– the emergent scholarly agreement that Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564 (three days before he is known to have been baptized)– and scratch off a birthday verse or two…  On a more somber note, it is rather more trustworthily known that Shakespeare died on this date in 1616.
