Weapons of Mass Destruction?
Photograph by Lynn Johnson

Sgt. Eno Diangson, a police officer at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, prepares to take a month's worth of confiscated scissors, corkscrews, and nail files to the shredder. Before 9/11, few people imagined that things like box cutters and passenger jets could be used to kill thousands in mere minutes. Now it's clear that death can hide in the most innocuous of instruments.
