In Des Moines, Iowa, a woman who is an airport worker has reported to federal officials the theft of her peanut butter and jelly sandwich from the lunchroom. Local police didn't want anything to do with it, so it is now in the hands of the Transportation Safety Administration. While stealing a sandwich is wrong, is there wisdom in spending time and money on a sandwich with all the concern over war and terrorism? Life is easier when we keep our priorities in order.
