The editorial board of the Bloomberg News website has fired a common-sensical broadside that I honestly never thought we’d see. On April 23rd, 2013, Mayor Mikey’s mouthpieces published an editorial entitled “Allowing Knives On Planes: Yes, It’s A Good Idea.”
With terrorism prominently in the news — and opposition surging from flight attendants and others in the airline industry — this decision was perhaps inevitable. It’s also wrongheaded.
I actually checked the dateline when I saw this article the first time, to make sure it wasn’t published on April Fool’s Day. For the first time ever in the entire history of ever, I agree with every word that Bloomberg News has to say on this issue. I even agree with the way they say it, and that’s probably the only time that will happen between now and the heat death of the universe in 10^100 years or so.
