As a further sign of the times in which we live, a woman armed with hand cream caused a flight from London's Heathrow to Washington Dulles to be diverted to Boston. The plane even received an escort from two F-15 fighters.
Hand creams, like all other liquids and gels, are supposed to be banned from carry-on baggage. The concern is that a suicide bomber may mix common household chemicals to create some sort of liquid bomb that would then bring down the aircraft.
All this prompts the question: When did MacGyver become a terrorist?
