TSA Now Allowing Small Knives On Planes, But American, US Airways, Delta, and Congress Are Against It
If being stuck on a plane with a bunch of strangers for over three hours has ever given you the urge to stab someone in the eye, then I have some good news for you. The Transportation Security Administration announced recently it is relaxing restrictions so that now individuals can bring small knives on planes. This has been met with the kind of measured, reasonable response you would expect: everyone is freaking out. Three major airlines have come out strongly against the measure, and now Congress is getting in on the action, asking the TSA to reconsider its policy of giving people stuck in small, uncomfortable seats thousands of miles in the sky the ability to wield sharp objects.
