So Much for Common Sense


According to some dimwit at the TSA, they figure relaxing the rules on banned items you can take on a plane might make sense. So what are they planning to allow back? Knifes shorter than 5 in. (thinking pocketknives), razor blades, scissors. However: keep going. Icepicks, bows and arrows, and perhaps even box cutters. Um, I hate to bring this up, but: 9/11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Part of the theory is that with reinforced cockpit doors and passenger participation, chances of something going wrong lessens. It wouldn't help. Think about it. One good poke...
