Liquids on Airplanes
Looks like Europe hopes to end the ban on carry-on liquids...will the U.S. follow suit?
EU to ease airport liquids rule in security revamp

It's not a ban. The 3-1-1 rule is:
3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume) ; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure.
Why 3.4 oz? Because any liquid explosive or mixture at that volume or less is unlikely to blow a hole in an aircraft fuselage. Theo can likely speak to this.
You can purchase water or other liquids once past security. Or carry a sports bottle and fill it up from fountains. If Missy needs her 4-5 bottles of shampoo and conditioner she should check her bag.

No booze Pickel.
The spectrum analyzers are pretty accurate. Most are shielded from travelers' views. Rarely does TSA request to take a sample or whiff if in 3-1-1 compliance. The dogs are good at that of course. About 70% of travelers do their homework and adapt. It's like playing whack-a-mole to keep the nefarious guessing.
The focus lately is on profiling and behavior detection, with TSA smurfs performing terminal sweeps and random boarding gate searches with mobile analyzers. Parking lot and drop-off zones also. Local LE are fewer seen lately but depends on the airport. BDOs(Behavior Detection Officers) are the rule of the day.
It's a sad sign of the times.

I know we're allowed to bring a limited amount of liquids on board, but it is a hassle to not be able to carry on a bottle of wine, bbq sauce, or a jar of jam. I don't like checking my bag for short trips. With all the delays and cancellations that I've been through I hate having to wait a day for my checked bag to make it to wherever I am.

Overhead bin space is not your grocery cart. lol You can buy the same stuff wherever you are likely going. Try not to check. You can always find a laundry room and an iron. Back-packing students have it down.
Up to a certain price and weight-point, ship it FedEx at the same price as checked luggage now. I do it with regional bbq-hot sauces and wines. shh!.. )
