and keep your fists in your pocket at all times
Seized at airports during the Thanksgiving crush: 15,982 pocket knives, 98 boxcutters, six guns and a brick.
A brick? Remember people, bricks don't kill people, people kill people. And when you outlaw the bricks, only the outlaws will have bricks.
Regardless of what someone was doing carrying a brick onto a plane (a holiday gift for someone they hate? Re-enacting a cartoon?), it stands to reason that if bricks are barred from planes, then we must bar all heavy objects that could result in injury if used as a weapon.
Henceforth, frozen turkeys, cement blocks and copies of the Congressional Record will no longer be allowed on flights.
I still want to know where that passenger was going with that brick.
