Major Terror Plot Disrupted, Security Increased in DC

If you travel internationally, expect some static in DC today, as a major terrorist plot was disrupted that planned multiple bomb attacks on US-UK flights. WTOP reports that the security lines at Dulles are incredibly long today as a result of the elevation of the security level at airports in response to this threat.

The TSA has also issued a Threat Level Change that prohibits liquids or gels of any kind in carryon luggage. Forget taking your soda on the plane with you. Forget packing your own shampoo. Forget carrying hand lotion. Hell, forget even toothpaste because it might target you for an extra special cavity search.

Yes, thanks to terrorists, flying is going to suck for quite a bit longer now. Thanks, assholes.

    You can pack that stuff in your checked luggage, but now I’d have to entrust my Veganese to the tender mercies of the TSA searchers. Bitches.

    Of course this happens as I’m about to be shipped off to two conventions for work. I’m grumbling that I can’t pay five bucks for a nice tall cuppa ‘Bux before stepping on the plane, only to now have to pay that much money for a very small thing o’vodka on the plane. Dang it.

    Here’s a rant and photo on Pirate’s Cove worth visiting.
