Bob Burton and the Sacramento television station where he worked were seeking a way to humanize the news, and thus the "Waiting Child" feature was born.

For about a year now I have been shipping clothes to my destination by FedEx. I will ship a suit, sports jacket, shirts and other items, including my toiletries. They have been delayed only once. The host hotels hold the package for me, and I spend zero time in airport security. The cost of delivery can be as little as $25, depending on weight and destination; you can save money by requesting two-day delivery. You might also consider UPS or the Postal Service.
