Julie, not ragging on you for giving them the cane, but when 
people do that it does make it harder for those of us who don't 
want to give up our canes.  I'LL gladly give it up if it won't 
fit between the wall and the window, but I'm not giving it up if 
it fits.  It's illegal for them to ask it, and I'm not giving my 
cane up.  Hopefully there will be no incidents the next time ow 
have to fly Alaska.  Of course, I still might only have my funky 
folding cane.  I remember reading articles in old Braille 
Monitors about people refusing to give up their canes and being 
arrested.  It's kind of like I won't leave a restaurant when I 
have my dog just because somebody doesn't know the law.  People 
have fought too hard for the rights we have to give up our canes 
and/oor dogs.    Peace,    Debby
