Flying with Kindle

TSA's position on e-readers and netbooks for travel.
This is a bit of travel nerdery that I thought might be worth sharing. Last week the TSA blog explained the agency's position on netbooks, e-readers and the such:
Electronic items smaller than the standard sized laptop should not need to be removed from your bag or their cases. It's that simple.
First thing, the TSA has a blog?!?!? Second, they go one to explain that the more cluttered your bag is, the more it will need to be emptied (something I experienced this week coming home from Charlotte where I was told I "had too much stuff"). For what it's worth, I feel like I should print this out and present it to TSA agents when I'm told I must always take out my Kindle ... though I can't imagine that would help matters.
