Transportation Security Administration agents confiscate up to 20 knives each day from travelers passing through Kentucky's Blue Grass Airport. Tasers, tools and martial arts weapons are among the other items detected on a daily basis. "I think ten years after 911; the TSA is evolving as an agency," says TSA spokesman Jim Fotenos. "First and foremost, I want to give credit to the officers who are here every day, working with the traveling public through the security checkpoints, finding items that could be dangerous on an aircraft."
