Wash your hair

You don’t have to fly dirty anymore. They’re letting shampoo and other liquids and gels back on commercial airliners again. Which is good news at the Rancho where we are all flying out next week for Virginia.

"’We now know enough to say that a total ban is no longer needed from a security point of view,’ said Kip Hawley, head of the Transportation Security Administration, at a news conference at Reagan National Airport."

UPDATE  Actually, it’s not that simple. Seems you can carry three-ounce bottles of liquids and gels onto planes, so long as all items fit into a single quart-size zip-top plastic bag. Also got to have your baggie out for inspection at checkpoints.
