AA pilot screwed over via TSA

Yeah, I know it's kinda dated... March 2003, but here it is:

right here

Here's what I'm thinking: the pilot, after having his nail clippers removed, probably said, ' You know, I got an axe in the cockpit that could be used to cut your head, so why don't you come down there and confiscate that as well???'

TSA has never ceased to define IRONY!
Maybe the pilot should have said “Yeah, I’ve got a boot here that you may need surgically removed from you A$$” TSA can be mighty petty.
