Okay, what I want to know is are they going to give me back my god damn swiss army knives, nail clippers, tweezers, and scissors? Incidentally, Mink Hippie and I were recently travelling together and I realized I had a ‘prohibited’ item in my pocket. Out of curiousity, I stashed it in my carry on. The TSA ran my bag, saw something, ran my bag again, and then let me go. I repocketed my contraband and boarded the plane shortly after…. Good thing we’ve made air travel even more of a pain in the ass….
WASHINGTON – Airline passengers will be allowed to carry small scissors and tools onto planes, reversing a rule that led to confiscation of many thousands of sharp objects at airports since the Sept. 11 terror attacks, a
Homeland Security Department official said Wednesday.
