    Star Tribune: Security illusions: The TSA caves on small knives -- The TSA will continue to waste time on small knives, because some people said so

    The board and the popular press are wrong. Unfortunately, the TSA and its political bosses in the Department of Homeland Security caved in the face of uninformed clamor; the TSA will continue to waste inspector time and attention confiscating perfectly harmless little knives and infuriating innocent travelers, who just cannot believe anyone would consider them and their pocket penknife a hijacking threat.

    ...

    I do not believe such an attack will ever happen again. Certainly not if the hijackers are jihadists — and certainly not when hijackers are armed with penknives.
