TSA has announced that it is going to allow pocketknives on airplanes. But it is going to continue confiscate water bottles. And some high-paid idiot thinks this is a good idea.

Someone will have explain to me how eliminating Saturday mail service while continuing Saturday package service saves money. The employees still report to work. The vehicles still run. The only difference is that the mail stacks up.
