The Terrorists Have Already Won

We are planning our first family vacation: me, Newmommy and Bud. The last time I was on a plane was June and, apparently, there have been a lot of changes to the security screening process. To brush up on the current state of airport security, I visited the Transportation Security Administration's "Travelling With Children" website.

Let's go through some highlights.

"NEVER leave babies in an infant carrier while it goes through the X-ray machine."

TWICE in bold, blue letters. Are there really parents who would do this? There would have to be for such prominent, repeated warnings! Oh, so only luggage goes through that thing!

"Let your children know that a Security Officer may ask to see Mom or Dad's shoes, but that they will get these back..."

Well, that's a relief. I can just see Bud crying all the way to Puerto Rico because they wouldn't give Daddy his shoes back!

"Our Security Officers will not test or taste formula or breast milk."
