Only one carry on? No electronics for the first hour of flight? I wish that, just once, some terrorist would try something that you can only foil by upgrading the passengers to first class and giving them free drinks.

[I think the problem is that people don’t feel an increased level of security unless restrictions are increased. Sort of like a child’s blanket or a parents arms. When the child is wrapped up and held tightly they feel the most secure. The problem is that people don’t seem to realize government is not a parent. It is force, like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master.–Joe]
