The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

The flight attendant on US Airways couldn't spare me a pen so I could fill out my customs form.

"We don't stock them anymore," she said, "because of the danger associated with sharp objects." And then I got thinking the way I always get thinking.

I turned to a fellow passenger. "You know, this is what they meant when they said the pen was mightier than the sword."
