Well, I have a little thing on my keychain that has a tiny knife in it. I used it often for snapping plastic bands, and opening packages, etc. Herself has a money clip that has a small knife in it. Same thing. Used for opening things sometimes. And those corkscrews are quite familiar. I'm not saying I approve, but you do realize that all this "inspect you down to your naked body" hasn't caught a single person right? The shoe bomber, and that other guy (geez, gotta love this sieve of a memory) made it past security. We need some types of reasonable criteria, but sealed containers with water and other food or body products do not seem to be reasonable to me. As for traveling with firearms, I know for a fact that Orlando is very careless with that. A woman I used to work with traveled with a handgun all the time! She NEVER got stopped going out of Orlando and actually got into a HUGE argument in Charlotte's airport because of it. They finally made her go and buy safety mechanisms for the handgun and the TSA there reported Orlando. So, all that to say, I don't think the tiny blades are the problem. I think the idiotic criteria is the problem.
