They are announcing on the radio in Los Angeles that baby formula and 
prescription medication will be manually checked before boarding.

I would not chance it.  But the airlines are allowed to stock their own 
bottled goods, just not passengers.

So I suppose that all good LA people should buy drinks for the British

but this will be my excuse for buying drinks for cute British guys at 
WorldCon in a couple of weeks.
