NY is more fun

I was reading the profile this morning of a senior official at the Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration and this line about JFK Airport in NYC just jumped out at me:

In the last year, Transportation Security Administration screeners have intercepted more than seven million prohibited items. Typically, it's knives, guns and scissors. But you would not believe how many recreational handcuffs I have seen in property rooms at airports around the country. I don't want to single out J.F.K., but the ones I've seen there were lined in everything from suede to fake fur.

It's like I've been telling you, NY is more fun.

Funny, I went through an airport security with a pair of them last autumn. No one tried to take them from me, and that's a good thing, since I love my recreational handcuffs :)

You must have been travelling through some of those "sophisticated" European airports, Helen!

Sorry, RP-it was in San Francisco.

I blogged about it, too (not trying to pimp my blog here, just FYI)

SF? Might as well have been Europe. They're pretty "sophisticated" in SF, too. Not like us simple folk here in NY.

I'll go check out the link. It ain't pimping, Helen, unless you're dressed for it and all macked out. Besides, I already have you as one of my "good reads".
