Lighters and matches and airplanes
Turns out that the Transportation Security Administration couldn't quite get its ducks in a row in time.
The ban's now been pushed back two months, so that it will take effect April 15.
No matches, either.
You can check matches but not lighters.
The restriction will bring to a close the pre-9/11 era, in which the policy was that travelers could bring on board in their carry-on bag two lighters and four books of matches.
That policy also allowed the sale of lighters and matches beyond security checkpoints.
That's over as well.
Next: smoking in airports.
Those that haven't already outlawed smoking in the terminal are considering a total ban.
