    Can someone explain to me why a plastic knife:

    ...is considered a "prohibited item" and "presents a threat to aviation security" while a pair of 12" spikes (knitting needles) are not?

    What has been lost at TSA is that 9/11 was an effort to use the airplane as the weapon. Open cockpits, complient crews, and passengers who would not get involved has all changed. If the goal is nothing more than blowing up an airplane the easiest path is to do it as a non passenger. Anyone with one working brain cell knows airport workers have the access to do the job. Well, everyone except people at TSA which may prove they have no working brain cells.

    Even more, the TSA thinks that "objects" are dangerous. They're not, really. The people are, and quite a few of those are the ones accepting TSA paychecks.
