    Give a peon a LITTLE bit of authority…

    Back in 1983 our 8th-12th grade band went through the airport at Dulles. One of the girls put filled squirt guns in her carry on. Being before the days of travel stupidity, everyone had a hard time keeping a straight face as the squirt guns were removed from the luggage…

    And howabout if it was a squirtgun. Liquid. My uncle saw a guy pour a bottle of wine down a drain rather than give it up and give the TSA a chance to drink it later.

    John, you are an idiot, what were you thinking? Oh that’s right, you weren’t!

    Kids and guns, always a good combination!

    I thought that this kind of thing wasn’t enforced nearly as much when Michael & Elizabeth were that age….

    Back then, this would be funny. Today, unfortunately, it is the norm!

    AgProv – those airline jobsworths you refer to are all that stand between between you and the several thousand or so feet gap that would instantly appear between you and the earth, if some terrorists’ bomb blew the aircraft out of the sky. Next time you feel the urge to self-rub your ego, try not do so at the expense of some poor underpaid chump who has to put up with your sadly deluded, aggressive, dismissive arrogance while he or she does their best to ensure you have a smooth journey AND reach your destination intact.

    Overreaction to a toy sold at the AIRPORT. Guess they should collar the guy at the kiosk and go through his inventory. Obviously a subversive.

    I remember rifles being carried openly on board and the stewardess would help get it into the overhead compartment.

    The importance of their task is exactly the reason why TSA gate inspectors should get paid more than a convenience store clerk!

    True! I dislike the inconvenience – and I’ve flown quite a lot over the past 35 years, so I have something to compare it with – but to blame the TSA folks themselves is cruel. You try being paid nothing, then having to put up with thousands of angry customers venting their spleens at you because you’re convenient. The people who make the rules never get the flack.

    When I was in high school in the 70s we had a band exchange trip to Toronto. On the bus going into Canada, the border guy got on and asked if everyone was born in the United States. We all answered yes and on we went. On the way back, the guy got on and asked the same question. Everyone said yes except some wiseguy in the back said “Si Señor”. The guy went down the aisle asking each person where they were born and a couple of other questions, and it took 45 minutes to get through. Those guys don’t like jokes.

    A similar thing happened to me at a theme park. My long metal whistle was confiscated from my purse as I was entering the park. But I was able to purchase a “fish whacker” (a lead core baseball bat) in one of the shops in the park. Go figure.
