Briefcase Surprise

Headed from Sacramento to Chicago,                                                                                          
I inadvertantly left a knife
in my on-board brifecase.

Airport security found the knife,
and I was completely surprised.

No, I was not detained.
Yes, they kept the knife.

In this fearful terrorizing age,
surely, I would be arrested.

It happened prior to 2001.
