Something odd about those two freed journalists

Something strikes me as weird about the two young women journalists freed from supposedly harsh captivity. What's up with all the baggage they carry?

I am so impressed that the NoKos were able to keep track of all that stuff for five months!There is no airline in the US that could.

Were they picking up trinkets for the family? Did they get some lovely parting gifts, keepsakes from the Dear Leader? Or maybe they just saved up the shampoo bottles and pillow mints?

There is something about this episode that just doesn't smell right. The only thing missing from the welcome home ceremony, produced by Steve Bing's entertainment company, was the styrofoam columns.
