Friday News Round-Up for August 17th

Since we’re still in vacation season, the TSA has some examples on their blog (yes, they have a blog) of what not to bring on an airplane—but people try anyway.  So far in the first half of 2012, they’ve dealt with 821 firearms (691 of them loaded!), 40mm explosive grenades, spear guns, a stun gun masquerading as a cell phone, a knife mounted on grandpa’s walker and a chastity belt.  If you want to see more, visit http://blog.tsa.gov.  In the meantime, read up on some industry news.  All titles with an asterisk* can be found in our Wooden Horse Database.
