A family has been caught after vacationing at an Eilat hotel with no less than 63 towels and 370 bags of Elite coffee.

The theft might never have been discovered had not police arrived at the family's home in the middle of the night, a few hours after the family returned home, on suspicion that drugs were concealed in the house.

Moriah means YAHWEH provides.

The Clintons never stole from the Sheraton. They did how ever try to clean out the USS George Washington. I was on a Med Cruise with the GW battle Group when that happened.

When I was in my good "earning years" wifey and I would spend a week or 10 days at the very pricey Halekulani in Honolulu....one of the special things about the place was the staff.

On one of the "back of the house" tours we took, the manager told us how the staffers would hand box all those little goodies and then give 'em a Hawaiian blessing, knowing that even the zillionaires who stayed would be squirreling them all home.

....haven't been back for around 10 years now, but we're still working on some matches, shampoos, etc. - and my treasured foot-long teak shoehorn is still master of my side of the closet.

I haven't done very much traveling in my life, but I never took so much as a used bar of soap or a plastic cup out of a room. The longest I ever stayed in one place away from home was 3 weeks, and I came back with less than I went in with. There's a whole lot of really amoral people in the world.

Now, dumpster diving is a whole other story.

I’ve spent hundreds of nights in hotels and never took so much as an extra bar of soap.

Some people. Sheesh.

I have more problem that the police raided these people's house in the middle of the night on an unwarranted drug charge.

If the hotel wants to proceed with criminal or civil cases against these people, fine, but busting down the doors in the middle of the night?

In the US, the warrant has to specify what is being sought.

If you find evidence of another crime, you can't use it in court.

I guess it's different in Big Brother Land.

I was TAD to S-5 on the "G-Dub." They had some nice towels and bathrobes for VIP guests! Sadly, I never did get around to tossing a few mementos into my seabag. Anyways, not worth going to mast over.

I remember it well, Ern. Clinton surrounded himself by the worst, rather than the best. Honorable, decent people would not have put up with him and defended him.

Most of the hotels I’ve been in will encourage you to take home the little shampoos and moisturizers. But towels? Uh, I don’t think so.

That’s ok. Of all the places I’ve stayed, none of them had nice towels, and that includes the more “deluxe” accomodations.

I assume you also saw post #12 - confirmation post (as if such were needed).

I'm kinda guessing that one of Zero's first "Perk Orders" was to double the bling supply for his traveling Air Force One entourage....there's gotta already be quite a few in "the community" flashing some 'looky here' stuff on the streets of South Central around various ACORN facilities. Street Creds.

Some people are too lazy or cheap to buy a set of towels.

I'm too lazy and too cheap to buy a set of towels that large. I wonder where they thought they would store than many clean towels, and what they planned to do with the dirty ones that they thought they needed a supply that large before doing their laundry. Besides being dishonest, it's stupid.

I spent four years in Havana, and got out of there every chance I had. Every time I did, I stayed in hotels in Washington and Miami, and every time I did, I cleaned out all the freebies, and gave them to my maid when I got back to Havana. She and her relatives REALLY appreciated the largesse of the U S hotels.

I found a hotel towel among my things after a trip once (mixed in with wet swim suits).......talk about guilt. I do not even take the freebie soaps and shampoos. I have my own and consider it a waste to even use theirs.

They didn’t just take what they found in their room, they got into a storeroom to steal that much stuff.

I had forgotten that story.

I was referring to the way they stole antique furniture and other public property when they vacated the White House 1/20/01.

The ironic thing is that I sent an email to the White House in ‘98 at the time of the impeachment calling for Bubba to resign, I then added the following PS:

“Leave the silver and linens, they belong to us.”

I’ve been afraid to try that since I saw “Midnight Run”.
