    Reuters: UPDATE 1-Man detained after baggage triggers bomb scare in Minneapolis airport

    And therein lies the rub: TSA doesn't use equipment that actually tests for explosives. As it turns out, however, the machine apparently didn't alarm on anything. One of the Keystone Skreeners screwed up, see WCCO article below.

    Terminal 2 = Southwest, Sun Country & a few smaller airlines.

    Turns out it was a water filter ... :rolleyes:

    Isn't it great that TSA can impose fines on a person for doing absolutely nothing?

    Sure, as long as passengers can fine the TSOs involved in terminal dumps caused by TSOs' incompetence.

    I kind of hope they do in this instance. I would like to see how this plays out in court...oh...wait! When TSA levies a fine it doesn't go through the "actual" court system, does it?...never mind!:mad:

    Beginning May 1, all Minnesotans attempting to enter Wisconsin will need to have proof of IQ, as well as undergo test of common sense.

    It's so frustrating that now I'm resorting to some creative name calling. Geez.
