Bad Ideas Rule the Day at the TSA
The Transportation Security Administration has thrown everything in the air and they have reversed a decision that no one could understand in the first place. The agency needs to focus on protecting travelers; if this is a part of the "programs" they are going to focus on, then they need to explain to people what these programs entail. If they are going to use this time for junkets and bad decisions, then we might as well shut down travel in this country. The TSA needs to stop jerking people around.
Everyone who shows up with a knife of some kind that was passable under the old rules should not be punished. About 2,000 people per day end up losing their knives to the screeners; why can't they be mailed home automatically>
I highly doubt the TSA will even bother to explain itself to people.
