Bring It On, in Miniature
The TSA has finally and thankfully relaxed its rules regarding liquids and gels brought aboard aircraft. Passengers can now bring miniature bottles of gels and liquids as long as they are fully declared at security checkpoints and stored in see-through, ziploc plastic bags. Many airport stores are selling the plastic baggies, and in one instance donating the profits to local charities. Passengers are also once again able to bring aboard liquor and perfumes purchased at duty-free shops. To avoid hassles, I recommend storing as many items as possible in one's checked luggage. But if you must carry-on your medicine cabinet, at least now you won't be turned away--so long as you keep it small!
