The TSA doing the small things

It is a source of continual astonishment to me that [airline] pilots -- many of whom, it should be pointed out, are military veterans who possess security clearances -- are not allowed to carry onboard their airplanes pocket knives and bottles of shampoo, but then they're allowed to fly enormous, fuel-laden, missile-like objects over American cities.
--Jeffrey Goldberg, Atlantic Monthly, on incoherent security policy
