Since when is TNT a keepsake?

Is it just me, or has the age of terrorism made people a whole lot stupider? Take today, for instance. No fewer than six separate airline incidents that could have turned for the worse. The biggest one happened on a flight from Buenos Aires to Newark, diverted to Houston because of some suspicious activity. Turns out the passenger had detonating devices in his carry-on and dynamite in his checked luggage. Why? Because he's a student who went went on a tour of a mine in Argentina and was taking home the contraband as a "souvenir."

A souvenir? I guess that makes those coins allegedly minted from silver left behind at the WTC vault (i.e. stolen) souvenirs, too.
