Perspective, please.

I was listening to NPR this morning, to a correspondent talk about the changes being made in airport security as a result of the (thankfully!) foiled plot in the U.K. The correspondent was theorizing that even though Britain has now banned all carry-on luggage, the US wouldn’t do so because, “it would cause considerable hardship to travelers.”

Ahem.

Considerable hardship is when you’re widowed because some nut blew up the plane. Having to wait an extra 15 minutes for the luggage carousel isn’t hardship. It’s inconvenience.
