As someone who may need this someday, I'm getting a kick... Even if it is a repeat!

Is this the one that was held up by the airline (or TSA)?

Sadly, the recipients all sound like Dennis DeYoung singing the opening of "Come Sail Away".

This appears to be a different one. TFA mentions two surgeons in Russia, but I'm positive the one about the airline not letting the guy fly with it involved going from England to Spain.

I think that one also involved a trachea rather than a larynx, but I'm not a doctor. Either way, it's just amazing that we can even attempt things like this.

Try not to implant a synthetic larynx on the way to the parking lot!

This research may eventually be awesome for transgender people. I'd be able to sound like a woman...
