Danger! It's Water!

Since I am planning another cross country flight soon I went to read the new list of what is and is not allowed. Water is not allowed. That's right people. No water. Not even sealed plastic bottles. No toothpaste either. Forget it. Too risky.

Am I the only one who thinks government might be over reacting a bit here? How many tens of millions have traveled just fine with these items?

Please, NO ONE put a bomb in a bra. I will stop flying.

My sister just returned from traveling internationally. She had her passport and a few dollars cash on her. Everything else was checked, for security. She arrived 3 days ago. Her luggage, however, was still in Europe. Today she got a message her luggage finally arrived at the airport. However, no one was working at the airport by the time she got the message at 4 in the afternoon. So she still has none of her stuff! However, everyone on her flight was completely safe from those toiletries!

My husband shared a quote once, I forget who by, that said something like "Those who sacrifice freedom for security eventually end up with and deserve neither."

Can we vote on Airline security?

One of my brother's favorite quotes.
And your sister is one of my favorite people!
