Having just returned from another air trip, I relate the following story.

On this trip, a one day in and out to a southern city, I carried in my rolling card a video projector, which we use for our pitch presentation to Potential Client.

Also on my person is a home-made burrito (I bring food on my trips, because I can't ever find healthy choices when I travel), and in rolling bag, in a pouch, is, as there has been for over a year, a small folding knife:
The knife was accidentally left in a pouch and it was my intention to remove it long ago, but the knife has been to Chicago with me so many times, that I decided to just leave it in there.

Well, my bag has been hand-checked several times (the burrito always gets attention) and it's been about a year now and not once have they picked up on this knife. I have a mailer, ready to go, but the knife just sits there.

I feel safer.

"Travel Suppression Agency" That's how I view them. I won't step foot in an air terminal.

Given what is happening now, it looks like the terrorists have won. frown

Airport authority has stupid policies to screen out dangerous people. If they can't differentiate between a movie T-shirt and a real weapon, we have serious problem.
