Speaking of fealing safer,

Cecilia Beaman is a 57-year-old grandmother, a principal at Pacific Middle School in Des Moines, and as of Sunday is also a suspected terrorist...

Yeppers, that is right. The TSA found her lost bread knife in her carry on.

Beaman, who was on a field trip with 37 students, had three bread knives to make sandwiches for the children and was careful to pack the knives she used to prepare those sandwiches in her checked luggage. She says she even alerted security screeners that the knives were in her checked bags and they told her that was OK.

But Beaman says she couldn't find a third knife. It was a 5 1/2 inch bread knife with a rounded tip and a serrated edge. She thought she might have lost or misplaced it during the trip.

Well, the TSA found her third knife. Deep in the outside pocket of a carry-on cooler.

She was charged with a felony, a $500 fine, and her name put on a terrorist watch list.

Thank God they stopped this insane woman before she did some real damage! I feel safer already and will be sleeping better tonight because of it...

What ever happened to the common sense factor in this country????
