Okay, I'll bite!
Since this purports to be Church of the Tactical Truth doctrine, let me point some things out.
Mad Dog has just given his own son a folder. In his remarks, the pope says, "since my son cannot carry a fixed blade at the college he attends..." I interpret that as meaning that if you find a folder that's tough enough, then some risk/reward analysis is warranted as to the legality of the folder versus the fixed blade. The pope further says he trusts the knife to "serve and protect my own son". Which I interpret to mean that at least some folders are tough enough not only for utility work, but for defense work as well.
Heh heh, sometimes you guys are so easy. Next!
