Reason to carry a pocketknife

Alligator grabs dog by the head, dog owner pulls out trusty pocketknife, gets alligator in the eye, gator lets go, dog and man go home.

Wednesday I made the mistake of forgetting to take my trusty pocketknife off my keyring before going through security at the Cleveland airport. Goodbye, trusty pocketknife!

Now, what the heck am I going to do if, while out walking my dogs in Ashland, I encounter a hungry alligator?

Too bad you weren’t an Arab, Prof. Moser, they probably would have let you keep the pocketknife out of fear of being labeled as "racial profilers." Now, if you were an 89-year old woman with some sewing needles, you would probably still be in jail and not having to worry about alligators!
