Declare the TNT, Sir

Good to know that the folks at Homeland Security are remaining vigilant about keeping explosives off of planes. This time around, it wasn’t some crazed terrorist with liquid nitro, but rather at college student traveling with a stick of dynamite which he checked in his luggage on a Continental Airlines flight from Argentina. A bomb-sniffing dog at the international arrivals area at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston detected the dynamite, which belonged to Howard McFarland Fish. Fish told Houston authorities that he works in mining and often handles explosives. Hmm, sounds rather fishy, Mr. Fish.
