Be Informed

While standing in line at airport security last week, I watched the smartly dressed girl in front of me throw a total fit when she found out she couldn’t take her Evian, bottle of perfume, and cosmetics bag full of gels and liquids on the plane. “Since when?” she screamed.

It was an unfortunate situation. To the other travelers it was clear that this bright looking woman was very ill-informed. I bet she felt pretty stupid, too. After all, when was the ban on liquids put in place? August?
