Something Special at Your Front Door at 3 in the Morning

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

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."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
