Baggage Restrictions

There's a story on yahoo news about how the restrictions on carry on luggage are hurting musicians who travel internationally. I can feel there pain, who in their right mind would feel comfortable about checking a priceless Stradivarius? Did you know that depending on the airline, if they lose your bag they only have to pay you $250? A normal bag with a shaving kitt, two outfits, two pairs of shoes, a sweater or two and a couple of books is worth way more than $250. It's not all bad news though:
It is not only high art which is suffering -- a spokesman for Scotland's oldest bagpipe teaching college said tourism could be hit as the regulations deter pipers from the United States and Canada from coming to competitions.
