I didn't post this in news for  submittal hooplah always gets me shot down  Is this real, even tho it's AP News? I mean, jeez, I find this
almost unbelievalbe [almost being, my 40+yrs have seen my gov agencies do some stuff I'de SWEAR they are all on crack!!]
This, from The Transportation Security Administration:
an official said would lift the ban on carrying razorblades and small knives
would allow scissors, ice picks and bows and arrows on flights
Are they on friggen '___'? Razorblades, the very item that started this whole damn mess. Bows & arrows? WHAT??
I found this story on
, who has the referral article from TBO.com
Bay Online], citing the story from The Associated Press.
also carries the story, as cited from AP News.
Someone tell me this is a grand hack of a news agency, and this ain't happening? I can understand the pat-downs becoming lax, as for the body
scanners, but to allow the very weapons that created this fiasco?
I apologize if this is on the forum somewhere, I did search around [and be damned if this board search engine ever found anything other than a one
word item for me].
If anyone deems this should go to the news forum here, have at it - perhaps leave a post with this as doing so, to keep multiple submits from
