A few weeks ago I was flying from Chicago to Dallas for a wedding on my used-to-be-favorite Airline, Southwest. When I landed in Dallas imagine my surprise when I opened my checked bag at the other end to find that my MacBook Pro was gone from the zippered compartment it had been in. Not only that but there was something sticky dripped on my possessions, the charger, my phone charger, and a silver purse were gone as well. I immediately called Southwest Airlines Customer Service, the Chicago Midway Airport Police Department, and the TSA to report my claim. The only way someone could've found that computer is if they watched it go through the X-ray machine at the TSA Checkpoint. Jonathan at SWA customer service did his best by me, but couldn't get approval for any compensation beyond a ticket refund and travel voucher, for which I believe he was truly sorry. Other than him I received no help or compensation whatsoever from either the TSA or the Midway Police other than taking my statement and drawing up a police report. On that computer was every song I've ever written, Lead Sheets, 100's of dollars of both sheet music and CD's I'd uploaded to my itunes, the novel I was writing, all my photographs for the past 6 years and a year's worth of research for the Musical I'm writing. I don't believe than anyone should take a hit like this, but I REALLY can't afford to take a hit like this. I am a singer/songwriter trying to save enough money to move to LA to pursue my dreams, and I can't afford to replace this computer. So I put my hurts down in this song, I hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends and family.
