Should the TSA Allow Small Knives on Airplanes?

The Transportation Security Administration has decided that it's not quite ready to let people bring small knives and other objects onto airplanes.

Originally, the TSA decided to allow passengers to bring small folding knives on planes, as well as some sports equipment that's been banned since 9/11.

This change was supposed to be implemented later this week, but, for reasons not completely explained, the policy shift is being delayed.

So, before everyone at Sky Harbor (and elsewhere) is allowed to bring their small knives and hockey sticks on airplanes, let's take a poll -- should the small knives and sports equipment be allowed on planes?
