I for one, was quite surprised over the Transportation Security Admionistrations new ruling relaxing the ban on knives on commercial airline flights here int he U.S. They have been banned since September 11, 2001. But now, passangers will be allowed to carry a pocketknife on board the plane. We can also carry-on golf clubs, ski poles, hockey sticks, lacrosse sticks and pool cues.

After going through the security checkpoints at airports in the past week, I felt fairly safe once on board. The safety restrictions that have been in place over the past eleven years seem to be working. Why fix something that is not broken.

We've all heard of passengers that freak-out on flights for one reason or another. Do you want them to have access to a knife? Are these new rules putting us at risk. What do you think?
