How does the song go? "She's got a .22 gun in her pocket full of fun & a razor in her shoe. She's bad, bad, Sheila Schultz. Baddest chick in the whole damn town. Badder than an old King Kong. Meaner than a junkyard dog" Hmmm. Nope. Ain't got the same ring to it. But I ain't no Jim Croce. And she ain't no Leroy Brown either. Just like the old west saloon, baby. Check your irons at the door.

The Tribune says "The bag was shared between Schultz and her husband". Do professional flight attendants share a bag with their spouse? I would think they have a bag they always use on their trips kept mostly packed with all their stuff except the clothes they bring on the next trip. Would you pack/unpack on every trip you make? Just wondering.

I think it was her purse and my husband thows stuff in my purse/bag all the time because he refuses to carry one himself and I do not always know what he throws in there until later. I can see how this could happen...................
