Someday, there’ll be a fascinating study on the psychology of people who try to get stuff past airport security.

It was another week of confiscation of inert hand grenades too — seven in all.
None came out of Minneapolis-St. Paul, although people trying to sneak stun guns through came in for special mention, as did the guy who joked about having a gun.
