Not sure where this should go but this is from an e-mail I got from TSA today.


The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that all lighters will be prohibited from sterile areas of airports and onboard aircraft.  This action is in response to a provision in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, which was signed into law by the President on December 17, 2004.  TSA Screeners will begin to enforce the ban on April 14, 2005.

For more information, please see the TSA web site at www.tsa.gov...

Thank You



I can sort of understand it -- the shoe bomber guy would have needed something to light his bomb -- so this would stop that type of thing. And you could light hairspray and make a flame thrower of sorts I think.
But I was still had a moment of surprise when I read this.
