Want. If for no other reason than I can scream "Greetings, program!" as I pass the local cops. maybe a little EL wire to complete the look.

In a pinch, I've found that pulling the insoles and stuffing the shoes with newspaper actually dries them in fairly short order. Swap the newspaper out after the first could of hours and you'll have dry shoes by the time your work day is over.

+1 for ziplock bags. I have a couple by the front door that I toss my smartphone or other small stuff I'm carrying into. Never failed me yet. If I'm transporting documents I have an old plastic folder with an overlapping cover (think of a manila envelope made out of vinyl) I'll toss them into before throwing into my Timbuk2 messenger bag. The messenger bag's never leaked but it doesn't hurt.

@d00b: Actually, they have to check your blood type prior to transfusion, so having that on the info sheet isn't really as useful. but the other info is great - known medical allergies, previous medical history, etc.
