TSA changes laws of physics, declares ice to be liquid

The War on Moisture continues! BoingBoing reader Dan says,

While listening to this piece on All Things Considered, Tony Jabbour mentions that ice is now prohibited from being carried onto aircraft – because it is a liquid. Though both Tony and Robert Siegel call ice a liquid, I am confident that both men are aware that ice is, in fact, a solid. Only the TSA could decide to either change the laws of physics or to put something (ice) into a category in which it clearly does not belong (liquid).

Actually I think the difference between liquids and solids was covered in my basic chemistry class vs physics but the point remains, we have idiots running our Airport Security. God help us all.
