Other Matters: Progress In Air Travel Safety

A friend writes:

Getting home, our plane had to stop in Sacramento to get gas. The jet stream was so strong last night, we flew north over parts of Canada to avoid it. Flying through the jet stream is NOT a good idea, so we did not.

I put some cottage cheese in a plastic container and into my carry-on, planned to eat it on the way. Evidently it looked suspicious—It took a while until the inspector asked me what it was. I told him. He threw it away and returned the container. Evidently, I was going to blow up the plane with cottage cheese.

I hope he confiscated that dangerous plastic spoon.
