Did we mention Dave Isay of StoryCorps is coming to town Monday? Ok, we did. But I’m going to do it again. Because it gives me a chance to share one of my favorite StoryCorps pieces, in which Betty Jenkins, 94, recalls creating a bit of an international incident when she crossed continents in an unpressurized plane while wearing a blow-up bra. Go on, just listen.

Like all StoryCorps segments, this one just wouldn’t be the same if Ms. Jenkins hadn’t recounted the adventure herself. And it leaves me with many, many unanswered questions – what was this then-young woman doing flying to Argentina in the ’30s or ’40s? And how can I meet her today? And what if we’d had Homeland Security back then?

If you have a favorite StoryCorps piece, let us know. And hope to see you Monday in Plano.
