    Not so much about the warehouse fiasco as it is about excusing TSA's existence -- from the Sacramento Bee, original in the L.A. Times ...

    Sacramento Bee: TSA criticized for warehousing scanners

    The small "victory" (apparently they are numerically challenged, as this list two items) are the gun parts in the stuffed toys that would have been found either pre-9/11 by either x-ray or metal detectors and the butter knife that was permitted as per their web page.

    Nope, because we don't need to grope people and strip-search them to find this stuff, nor do we need TSA.

    But on examination it's pretty clear that TSA is not a necessary component in finding these items. Any rent-a-cop with a metal detector would find them just as efficiently and much more cost-effectively.
