TSA Week in Review: Friday, December 06, 2013

Dear Santa: Would it be too much trouble to ask for The TSA to announce just once that they have actually caught a ter'wrist instead of simply just doing their job and self-promoting that they are finding items which are on the prohibited items list?

  • 34 Firearms discovered this week
  • Two inert grenades were discovered this week (AUS & DTW)
  • Six stun guns were discovered this week (IAH-2, MEM, BWI, OAK, SJC)
  • One heavily armed sock monkey

A friend of mine made an interesting point.

If a TSA employee can find it, it isn't really "artfully concealed," is it? I mean, they found it...
