[ - ] WOHMs who travel occasionally or frequently: what type of purse, laptop bag, and luggage do you have? Just donated my Jansport in hopes of finding something a little less frumpy for my heavy laptop. Starting to travel a lot more lately and want to be comfortable, practical, yet somewhat stylish (not trendy). Thank you. 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I do two 2-3 day trips a month (not much) - I know the flames are coming, but I always bring a large Vera Bradley duffel for clothes, etc. and a large canvas Longchamps bag for laptop (bought a little sleeve for it), book for the plane, wallet, etc. I pack a smaller purse for the trip.

The grand jury made its decision based on a ton of witness accounts and forensic evidence. I understand why they made the decision they did; even if you could entirely disregard the cop's account, all the other evidence and witness testimony was so contradictory, it seems there's no way a prosecutor would be able to meet the requirements for "beyond a reasonable doubt." That said, regardless of the specifics of this one case, we still have a huge problem in this country, and I'm glad so many people are pissed and protesting. [ Reply | More ]
