Re: Flying safely?

Today, at least, everything has to go in a see-through plastic bag.... glasses are ok, but without the case, forget the wine or olive oil (no liquids in bottles except baby formula), keys are ok but without the automatic door opening fob!

Nothing is allowed in any pockets.*

Everything else has to go in checked luggage.* Huge opportunities for theft.*

Maybe once they've had time to think it through they will relent...?

too cheap to even use dryer sheets - never mind recycle them!

Took the entire herd to Kinko's today for passport photos. The manager took the pics and we were chatting about travel. He said his wife is a flight attendant and she had told him stories of people standing in line at the checkpoint having little makeshift parties with the booze they had intended to carry on. It sounded like the best way to make do in the situation.
