TSA To Allow Laptops In Approved Bags

solszew Re:I don't think that sneaking stuff through is sm (571 comments)

Stricter measures?? The TSA people seem, to be generous, none too bright - I think they're already working at peak efficiency. Sadly, despite all of their misplaced, dehumanizing effort, they still don't seem able to do the job. I flew to Montana last summer, and TSA did a great job of confiscating my shampoo and shaving creme. However, when I arrived, I found that I'd accidentally left two knives in my carry on baggage, which were not detected. For fun, I left them in on my flight back home. TSA found the knife with a 2-1/2 inch blade at the gate, and chastised me most harshly (and confiscated it). They did not find the knife with a 6 inch blade, however. As far as I'm concerned, they are more "The TSA Show" than real security, placed there to demonstrate the gov't's commitment to security, rather than provide it.
