Bad News for Carry-On Travelers

AP reports that the TSA has eased up on some of the new air travel restrictions. However, included in the list of banned items is now mascara. Great.

I am typically a carry-on only traveler. I can't stomach waiting for my luggage at the always slow baggage claim. I even managed to travel through Europe for five weeks with two small carry-on bags.

So, for people like me, this new list is really bad news. It means that we either have to begin traveling with checked bags that contain our liquid and other banned materials. Or, we still travel carry-on and simply buy all new items once in our destination. Of course, then we'd have to leave them there upon departure.

All this to say, leave it to a few Muslim fanatic, fascists to ruin it for the rest of us.

Here's the story on the latest "no carry-on" list.
