Israel president on Air Canada after carry on dispute
Israel's national airline has apologized to President Shimon Peres after attempting to charge him nearly $5,000 to bring an oxygen tank on an official trip to Canada.
Israeli media reported last week that Peres opted to fly with Air Canada because El Al, for the first time, wanted to charge the 88-year-old president for the oxygen tank.
This story just struck me as funny.

You know what, though? I love that he was traveling on public transportation...I wish more pol's would do that, O2 tank or not. (And seriously, why $5,000 for a tank?? Good grief...)
Herding CatsWhen you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.
Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
