NO Liquids on Airplanes
I agree that security is an issue today on our airlines and we have to be more careful, but anymore it seems that it is altogether easier to drive wherever it is that you are going. I mean, you have to get to the airport 2 hours before departure. Then you wait. Then you board the plane. Wait. Then the flight. When you land....you wait. Then off you go and have to get a rental car or find a ride from someone....WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! By the time you pay for airfare, gas to get to the airport, parking at the airport, rental on a car, gas for the car...you could have spent less on simply driving. Now, the new rules are that you cannot really take much of anything onboard as a carry-on. However, I do realize that these new rules would not be in place if it weren't for these guys plotting to blow up an U.S. bound airliner. Okay, okay...I can comply with new rules....as long as the authorities continue to thwart the bad guys.
