Remember it Has been 11 1\2 years since that life goes on. There r still precautionary measures to avoid such terrorist acts. Carrying small knifes should pose no threat. The government makes logical rules hopefully. They have most.likely thought this through. Lets. Move on and not let. Such things intimidate and scare. Accept their rules please. Life is full of what ifs.

Are we attempting to have a rational conversation with what appears to be an irrational control freak?
What's the big deal about the EPA numbers anyway?
They're just harmless numbers which most folks don't pay much attention to.
Yet this character has a major hissy fit about them, and goes to extremes to vent his spleen about them and anyone who talks about them!
They're just numbers.
It's just a car.
This is just a second rate chat room.
Less than a dozen people hang out here at any time.
Nothing to act like a nut case about.
It's certainly not worth getting all humpy backed like he does.
