What is the TSA thinking?

I really do not understand these fools. Recently the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) announced that lighters could no longer be brought on aircraft effective 4/14/05. But, you can still bring book matches on board.

But, if you want a real good laugh............knitting and crochet needles are still permitted as carry on items. That's right folks, those nice, long, rigid, pointed items.

And if you don't believe me, just go to the TSA's own web site at

Scroll down on that page to "English version prmitted/prohibited items" then check the section headed "Personal Items". That is where you will see the info.

This is so ridiculous, I can't even say anymore.
