The ATL case is well-known, thanks in part to Jeff Foxworthy's mention of it in one of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour movies. There's even a gas powered blower in the display there.
The thing is that nearly 4 years since 9/11, folks are still trying to bring prohibited items through security or in their checked bags. Have these people been living in a cave or under a rock since before 9/11/01? It also helps to further the notion I have about folks packing their brains in their luggage when they go on a trip.
The last time I flew out of ATL was April 2004, and I got pulled aside and had my carryon inspected because of the rolls of coins I had in my bag (I was going to Las Vegas). I can understand being pulled aside, as a roll of coins are of a similar size to shotgun shells and some small fireworks. It didn't bug me too much, as it only delayed me 5 minutes while the TSA guy searched my bag (A piece of advice for everyone who travels with a carryon, get some of those mesh or clear plastic packing containers, as it makes it easier for them to inspect your bag without wrecking everything.) plus I still had over 2 hours until my flight was leaving.

WD-40 is a common spray-on lubricant. It's an aerosol (compressed gas) and a fire hazard.
Also, don't pack steel-toed boots in your checked luggage. That was the only thing in my bag that could have been mis-interpreted as anything last time I flew, and it was hand-searched both ways.
If I thought anything would be done about it, I'd complain mercilessly about how the TSA guys treated my best suit when they rifled through my bag. I understand the need for safety, but there's no reason to destroy my nice clothing!
Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it in summer school.

Those pictures are not CLE. There isn't a TCBY Treats at any of the security checkpoints. Take a look at the left side of the first picture. Also look at the floor tile. It doesn't match any of the floor coverings that CLE has recently installed in the airport.
Maintain 2300 until Boiler, cleared for the VOR-A approach, report BATLE inbound..
doesnt look like TCBY is AT the security checkpoint on the picture, and yes, TCBY treats is at CLE and from the looks of it, it is at upper terminal, which is precisely where the security checkpoints for all terminals are (not too far away at least), so im gonna say it is at CLE.
one of the pics has a reflection of the dude taking a pic.
