Fools

Today's Boston Globe has an amazing article about how many weapons are being seized from passengers at Logan Airport, with a record set during June:

"The number of potential weapons seized is steadily climbing at many of the nation's airports and the TSA has intercepted more than 7.5 million items, including 49,331 boxcutters, 1,437 firearms, and 2.3 million knives, since it began taking over security at the nation's major airports in February 2002, according to federal officials."

I used to find the signs at security checkpoints somewhat funny, reminding people that they can't take guns, knives, explosives, etc. on board. I guess people are actually that stupid that they try to carry on these things anyway. Where have they been the last two years? Under a rock?
