TSA to Allow Scissors, Tools on Planes
By LESLIE MILLER, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - Airline passengers will be allowed to carry small scissors and tools onto planes, reversing a rule that led to confiscation of many thousands of sharp objects at airports since the Sept. 11 terror attacks, a Homeland Security Department official said Wednesday.

The full list will be announced on Friday. What we got here is a leak.

YES! Although, technically, one could take small, round-ended scissors on planes for the past 4 years. I never had trouble getting mine out of BWI, but it wasn't worth the argument at the other end, though, when flying back to the DC area.
