    Re: Sextant as hand luggage on a plane

    As to a compass, in 1977 I was leaving New Orleans after attending a tax conference.

    In my briefcase I had a lensmatic compass in a brass case.

    What's that I was asked? A  compass! A blank expression!

    I slowly turned it around until the needle was aligned with North, and pointed out to the agent: that's the direction to where Santa Claus lives.

    Waved through.
