Who's gonna tell Worf.....?

Carrying knives is a serious issue. IMO, this wasn't the best way to get the message across. This picture was in the Metro yesterday, illustrating a piece on the knife amnesty that the police are currently running. Now I don't know about you, but I haven't seen many Bat'leths in our neck of the woods lately. For non-geeks, it's a weapon used by a race called the Kingons in Star Trek. They're also usually made of wood, as metal replicas cost upwards of $90. The attacks recently that have highlighted the issue of knives on the streets and in the playgrounds will have been made using much more prosaic, but no less lethal, impliments, It's these we need to deal with. Things like this only detract from that....
