Your safety at home is being closely guarded - this update should put your mind at ease.
First, let's hear about the 10 year-old girl arrested for taking a pair of scissors to her elementary school. School district officials said the fourth-grader did not threaten anyone with the shears, but they were taking no chances. Hmmm. OK, let's just skip that.
Next, Palm Springs International Airport has to be evacuated just a fortnight ago when someone called aside for a random security screening decided just to run off. Airport security evacuated the entire airport, including calling back and emptying two planes already on the runway, in an effort to find the suspect. They didn't.
Still, no one can get weapons on board, right? Not even nail scissors? At Yeager Airport in Charleston a short while back a woman took a loaded 9-mm handgun through screening. A screener suspected something in the bag and ordered a hand search. Another screener did not find the gun during the search, and the woman was allowed to proceed.
Yeah, we should all feel much safer these days. I miss Tom Ridge already.
