Now that passangers can't take their own shampoos, creams, lotions and such on the planes the hotel industry will find itself in a power position. The "free" bottles of shampoo, lotion, cream rinse, etc. that people used to take home from their hotel stay will now actually be USED during the hotel stay. If they are greedy about it they will start charging for the stuff too, like airlines charge for your bag lunch. Hotel gift and convience shops will be selling more deoderants, toothpastes and toothbrushes. All that means greater profits.
The airlines can collect unused contraband and in turn sell that stuff on the secondary market generating more income for themselves too.
It's not Al Quida at all. It's capitalism and free enterprise at work.
Deny them their right to individual choices and then supply them with what you want them to need.
So is America a great place or what?
