Coming just four days after the Dave Holland Big Band in San Antonio, this new month of September is really shaping up as a good time for concerts.
Security breeds insecurity, in this case: A Canadian airline pilot accidentally locked himself out of the cockpit after a trip to the restroom, which eventually forced the crew to remove the door from its hinges; there was a co-pilot at the helm, so the flight was never in any danger, but you can imagine the bad PR. (Oh, and I really like the name of the airline: Jazz.)
A polite pilfering: Someone is stealing flowers from the yards of homes in a historic Des Moines neighborhood....but hey, at least they're leaving thank-you notes to their victims.
