(Public Radio International)   It's only right that we let Customs enforce common-sense regulations against traveling with bagpipes, because if we just let pipers travel at their leisure it'll be total Somalia around here - or worse yet, Edinburgh   (pri.org ) divider line

Edinburgh is a nice place.  Just don't go there in the winter.

Heard this on NPR this afternoon and thought, "that's farked up."
That was the entirety of my opinion.

P.J. O'Rourke once pointed out that the 1990's civil war in Somalia (that's kind of still going on) was basically a bunch of men in skirts killing each other over matters of clan and honor.  "Add some bagpipes and a golf course, and it's Scotland."

So, if the ivory is really old, you can bring a weapon of terrorism into the US totally legally?

Why do bagpipe players walk while they're playing?

They're trying to get away from the sound, also.

What do you call a hitchhiking bagpipe player?

An optimist!

You laugh, but bagpipes are dangerous weapons

Look, a rocket launcher is one thing, but bagpipes are indeed weapons of mass destruction (of eardrums anyway) and they and their demented players should not be allowed on airplanes. Babies are bad enough, but pipers?!?

I'm glad I though not take my grand piano last time I went to Canada. I wonder what Glenn Gould would have done.

shiat like this is only going to get worse given the latest batch of insane laws and regulations against ivory.

Ivory is evil and papers can be faked. But we will never get a handle on the problem of poaching until China jumps on board.

This. Sunrise at 9am sunset at 3pm. Wind, rain, misery.

Edinburgh is nice, Glasgow is far worse.

My cousin took her 100 year old pipes to the same competition. Luckily she flew from Canada, so her pipes weren't held for ransom by the government.

Christ, just change out the parts already or retire it for a new travel set.
