The yahoo's running airport security in Columbus or Des Moines
confiscated my only greenie sometime before the TSA took over airport
screening, but well after 9/11. It had remained in my carry-on for
several trips shortly before this, but this time when they did a
complete hand-check of my bag, they decided this was an Instrument of
Terror. I thought it was the only way to tighten up the screws in my
glasses, but didn't argue with the nice (ahem) man.

I could buy another one, but this was the one given to me when I took
a work-study job in the Engineering department at college and learned
to solder random serial cables...
