    No worries. When I read back over my post I saw how it could have been taken differently.

    Bring on the hearings. Another way to waste time and taxpayer dollars.


    Wouldn't it be nice if they did their real job instead of just wasting time at the water cooler?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Well when 'unelected' officials make decisions you don't like (EPA, 'activist' judges) you demand 'democracy' and the elected officials to take over.

    NOW it's the opposite...

    From what the TSA agent told me the knife can't have a lock on it's blade, so box cutters and most clip knives are out. I have seen quite a few small pocket knives confiscated or given to a family member seeing them off. My knife is too big and locks so I have a knife waiting for me or check one through. (someone opined the 'west' has good ol' boys with gas guzzling pick-ups, I'd say you will find 7 clip knives on 10 fellas you see walk into a small town gas station.)

    Now since 9-11 everyone's attitude has changed when it comes to aircraft security, before people sat back passive and let the hijackers land the plane someplace to demand ... something. Now a drunk passenger gets taped to his seat, people are very pro-active now. Not to mention the new never open the cockpit door without a cart blocking the walkway, and a re-enforced door- it is a far different aircraft than pre- 9/11.

    Now if I wanted a kick ass weapon onboard I watch the old dudes board, mark where they sit. I have noticed they almost all have sweet METAL canes that have wicked crooked handles.

    I may not be Irish but I can appreciate a shillelagh...

    Forget knives, I can't bring my nunchucks but some maniac with a hockey stick can?
