You'd be surprised by the types of items that make their way through airport security -- from corkscrews and screwdrivers to wrenches and lighters. What's more, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that its list of "Prohibited Items" will soon shrink.
I'm not saying the TSA is staffed by a bunch of perverted, incompetent, lewd, pot-heads. But incidents like these make you wonder when the a TSA urges us not to judge the agency by the actions of a few, as it did last week.
The TSA's employee union, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), is accusing Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R.-Tenn.) of "bullying the TSA workforce" after she introduced a bill last week that would require its agents stop dressing like law enforcement officers.
