Just Asking: The TSA??

Just asking (and the question is from Mike Boyd, the airline consultant, in his post today on the Boyd Group Web site

"As of 12:01 a.m. August 4, 2007, cigarette lighters will suddenly be transformed from terrorist weapons into benign items passengers can now carry through TSA security check points. Every Zippo and Bic in America will be safe. But not until then, mind you.

... O.K., if the lighter prohibition is now determined to not be necessary, how come the TSA has to give a two-week warning of the end of the ban? The message is that it takes this ponderous bureaucratic mass weeks to implement a simple change. Weeks to communicate it to their thousands of screeners. "
