Airport Screeners Have Seized 4.8M Items

Airport Screeners Have Seized 4.8M Items

Among the more unusual items collected by screeners: a 15-piece cutlery set, a machete, a trailer hitch, horseshoes, that kitchen sink pipe and circular saw and metal wall hangings depicting the Greek god Apollo.
It's unclear to me if this article is bragging about how secure they're making the skies, or proof of how arbitrary and stupid the rules are.

I'm surprised that they don't allow a trailer hitch or horshoes, but allow anything heavy like a laptop computer or a book. You could hit somebody with one of those!
