I was at an Amtrak station this weekend. One of the pre-recorded announcements
concerned carry-on baggage.
"All bags must be stowed in the overhead bins. Bags are not allowed on the floor or on the
seats, especially in those areas designated for our handicapped passengers."
Does that mean that they are less not allowed on the fllor or seats in other areas of the
train? Perhaps only slightly not allowed in some areas and mostly not allowed in others?
It seems to me that once you tell people that something is "not allowed", that really ought
to pretty much cover the topic. Leave it at that and move on.
Well yeah. Then there's the whole set of special exemptions for the
under-privileged, the less fortunate, the disenfranchised, and the
A new affirmative action regularization dictates that not only are they
allowed to stow their stuff wherever they like, if they don't have nice
enough stuff, the government will buy them some.
Heaven forbid the lazy slugs would have to go out and work for their
stuff like the rest of us do.

The rule states that "Bags are not allowed on seats". A handicap seat is
a seat. It seems like a pretty simple, all-encompassing rule to me.
