Flight attendants don't like the new rules that allow passengers to carry small knives on board planes.  Veda Shook is a Portland based flight attendant and President of the Association of Flight Attendants.  She's leading an effort to get the White House to reconsider the rules before they take effect.  She says it doesn't make sense to allow passengers to bring knives on board.  The 9/11 terrorists used box cutters and the new rules allow knives that are only slightly smaller.  The TSA says the changes are needed so inspectors can spend more time searching for more dangerous items.
