Delta CEO criticizes new knife rule

Delta Air Lines CEO Richard Anderson said Friday he objects to the federal Transportation Security Administration's move this week to allow small pocketknives on airplanes.

"These items have been banned for more than 11 years and will add little value to the customer security process flow in relation to the additional risk for our cabin staff and customers," Anderson said in a letter to the head of the TSA.

    Everyone should have a knife. Everyone who flies should be FORCED to carry a knife. Then we will have the safest airlines ever.

    Thanks for your tips on this blog. 1 thing I want to say is that purchasing consumer electronics items over the Internet is certainly not new. The fact is, in the past several years alone, the market for online electronics has grown considerably. Today, you will discover practically any specific electronic device and gizmo on the Internet, which include cameras and camcorders to computer components and game playing consoles.
