It’s one thing to dread flying nowadays because of the flaming hoops one must jump through to get through TSA’s security checkpoints without a body cavity search, or dumping half the contents of your carry on in the trash for being .05 too many ounces of liquid, but even then you’re still treated like you’re […]
