    one of the comments was to the effect that no name means he was an agency dude. a civilian would have been name & picture in the news.
    i add to that--or related to a congress critter....one connected and thus protected.

    interesting if any more 'news' is published.

    A Sigma? So? The odds of the plane dying of natural causes are greater than the odds of that thing firing

    One thing I do find interesting is that although there are allegedly four guns per day found by the TSA in airports around the country, only a scant handful are deemed newsworthy enough to make their way to the headlines.

    What I find surprising is that TSA actually found it. I thought they only found loose quarters left in pockets, etc.
