Went through security twice 2 months ago, dressed for an interview. While they commented on the steel shanks in my dress shoes, they didn't say anything about the inova x5 in my briefcase or steel pens in my jacket.

Like anything else, perception is key. The further you can fade into the background of their minds and memory, the less they are to pay attention to you.

Why do people worry more if you argue with your voices than if you just talk with them? What about if you lose those arguements?

In the eyes of the TSA,

The pen is mightier than the sword. :D

Easy way around this new bit of nonsense from the TSA . . . Carry a metal pen that isn't advertised as being "tactical."

When I read the first post, I immediately thought, "Next new product line, the Non-tactical line of tactical pens."

All I have to say is, thank goodness the TSA is here to save us from ourselves. What would we do without them???

Not have to arrive at the airport two full hours before the flight is scheduled to take off.
