I tend to be a creature of habit. When I travel, lots of little items end up in my shaving kit. I noticed last night that one of them had leaked, and resolved to empty the thing out and wash it thoroughly. What I found in there was scary: one 5” nail file, two pairs of razor pointed scissors, a box of matches, a flashlight, and 3 oversized tubes that could have held enough plastic explosives to … well you get the idea.
This by itself is not so scary. What is scary is that I always have this shaving kit in my carry-on in case they “misplace” my checked-in luggage. This same shave kit has made it through security at the following airports at least once in the last year: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, Houston, Los Cabos, San Jose and Ft. Meyers Florida.
I have no editorial comment to share on this one; it kind of speaks for itself. The last time I got on a plane from SFO to Denver there was a gun in my backpack, but that’s a story for Friday’s blog. You don’t want to miss that one.
