The threat level can go back to ...... orange? blue? chartreuse? Do we still do that? I don't know.
On my recent trip to Austin, the ever-diligent TSA agents at the Atlanta airport found my Swiss Army Knife---AGAIN---and confiscated it. We are all safer now.
I always carry one (except for the few days after the TSA confiscates it). Who knows when I will need a toothpick, tweezers, a knife blade, a nail file or, most importantly, a corkscrew? Because I always carry one, I never remember that I am carrying it.
But have no fear, travelling public, the TSA is here to save us all from whatever evil deed I might have in mind using my Swiss Army Knife. Knitting needles? Those I can carry. And really, they look more potentially dangerous to me than the knife.
But shhhh.....don't tell the TSA folks.
