    TSA Administrator John Pistole announced the change today at an aviation security conference in New York.


    I haven't decided how I feel about this decision yet.
    I'm going to try and board a plane with one of these bad boys just to see what happens.

    That's because they have confiscated so many that every TSA (Touch Someone's Ass) agent and his/her family has 10 ten pocket knives each. They don't want anymore. The bastards owe me two good ones.

    Even after that, the are having to rent large storage buildings to store the unwanted pocket knives. It became a hassle.

    Yeah, when most people complain about TSA security it isnít because they canít bring a pocket knife on board. I would rather them keep the knife ban in place if it means I can bring my own damn drinks on with me.

    This is being blown out of proportion. The knifes they are allowing are not much of a threat.

    Liquid chemicals, particularly 2 parts mixable, can make tremendously powerful explosives and it takes little volume to do it.

    The concerns with wheel chairs is most are made of hollow metal tubes in which both explosives and parts to make a firearm can be hidden. That also is the reason they want laptops separate for careful examination. It would not take much of an explosion to bring down a jetliner. If I remember correctly, they initially required people to turn on electronics to make sure they were real - but booting time was probably too delaying.

    I can see why flight attendants wouldn't like this. Some passengers do go wacko, particularly if drinking. No one wants their face slashed and a 2 inch blade is sufficient to slash a throat.

    Again, I see this as a news diversion matter.

    Now let's see if they'll actually be allowed.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The new regulations are in line with the international standards. I don't think I've ever heard of that happening on a foreign flight. I could see the argument with larger knifes, but I just don't see what is being allowed causing an issue.
