TSA postpones new knife rule

Proving once again that a bumbling bureaucracy is responsive as long as The Right People are squawking, the TSA has decided to delay implementation of the new rule about knives.

Have no fear, though. You, the Little People, still don’t mean anything.

The new rule about knives (which are now, have been, and will continue to get on planes anyway) was scheduled to go into effect on April 25th. Now, however, it will be delayed. To when exactly we know not.

Methinks it was because the airlines squawked that the change is being postponed, though plenty of flight attendants are still unhappy.

Maybe if thousands of people were up in arms about being robbed and sexually assaulted at the checkpoint we could put an end to the strip-search scanners and gropes, too. Ah well, a gal can dream.
