From an October 2007 Today show story -- ironic, right?

Something Special at Your Front Door at 3 in the Morning

Question for Tim Wagner, The Voice of American Airlines and Friend of Unfair Park: Is it customary for American to return lost luggage to its rightful owner at 3 in the morning? Just wondering, because it happened to Don Teague, NBC News' Dallas correspondent, the other day. And it scared the shit outta him. --Robert Wilonsky

Update: A Friend of Unfair Park, who happens to be in the writing business, found himself sans baggage following an American flight recently and sends along word that, "No, what happened to that guy was not an exception. And it did scare the crap out of me -- some fellow pounding on the door at 1 a.m., not identifying himself, and making me sign for the luggage."
