Sigh. Security theater continues, despite layoffs of actors
TSA is going to lift the ban on small knives (2.36″ or less – who came up with that measurement??) that don’t lock and aren’t fixed blade, but they are still not allowing box cutters.
I can do more damage with a box cutter than with a 2″ knife? Really? I guess maybe I haven’t ever used a box cutter with a 2″ blade that wouldn’t snap right off if extended that far out.
Oh, and they are going to allow whiffle ball bats. If they’d only ask the guys I know, they’d keep those things banned. Obviously these people have never been on the receiving end of a whiffle bat beatdown. I have it on good authority that they hurt like a bitch.
Rather than lifting bits and pieces of the restrictions in a haphazard manner, I’d rather they just let me keep my shoes on and got rid of the frisking of toddlers in wheelchairs. I’d much prefer they were all sequestered out of jobs, but that isn’t ever gonna happen.
