After recent flights to Florida, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii, and with upcoming flights through La Guardia, Boston Logan, Vegas, and back to Orlando, I'm forced to agree, even though the magazine's audience is relatively small.
The recent Orlando Sentinel series on airline cargo terrorism and today's story fr AP don't help much either:
<Reporters Able To Smuggle Knives Onto Flights
POSTED: 8:00 a.m. EDT September 4, 2002
NEW YORK -- In a troubling investigation, reporters for a New York newspaper were able to smuggle several small knives and pepper spray through security checkpoints to board 14 flights over Labor Day weekend at 11 U.S. airports.
Reporters for the Daily News were able to bring the banned items -- utility knives, rubber-handled razor knives, a pocket knife, a corkscrew, razor blades and pepper spray -- through every airport security checkpoint they attempted to pass, the newspaper said.
When asked for a comment, Chris Nardella, a spokeswoman for United Airlines, delivered a warning to the newspaper: "That is a violation of federal law that you guys knowingly took those items on an airline. You can be arrested." >
Hey, ya gotta love that last quote! :rolleyes: Way to go, Chris!
What say you, Emperor Richard? :genii: Are we nitpicking? Or is it possible everyone should be more careful?
