We thought the Transportation Security Administration – TSA for those of you who don’t care to follow the often nonsensical statements from this agency – would have lifted one ofits most bizarre rules by now.

But surprise, surprise, until last month it was still there, a remnant of the immediate past 9/11 host of measures devised by people who had absolutely no idea what they were doing.

We are more than pleased to announce that the rule against bringing more than 3 ounces of breast milk aboard aircraft, has been relaxed to accommodate travelling mothers.

We’re not kidding here, SIX YEARS after 9/11, the TSA has fi nally found out that breast milk can probably not be classifi ed as a dangerous weapon.

Oh yeah, since this month disposable lighters are also off the menu of banned items, although the TSA added that torch-style lighters will still be banned.

Back to the breast milk. Readers of this column will surely remember the incredible story of a mother with a young child who wanted to board an aircraft, but was forced to fi rst swallow a bottle of her own milk, before an idiotic security zombie allowed her on board.
