Change is coming.
And the TSA is tickled pink.
It turns out, as travelers in the U.S. rush through airport security checkpoints, they often forget to retrieve their pocket change that they must remove from their pockets before going through the scanners manned by licensed TSA peeping toms.
This must happen a lot.
It's been reported that the TSA, in 2010, pocketed more than $400,000 in change.
That is not a typo. Four Hundred thousand bucks!
That could buy a lot of surgical gloves.
Republican Rep Jeff Miller from Fla, proposed legislation suggesting that the forgotten change should go to the USO.
This is one time I agree whole heartily with a Republican Rep.
But guess what.
He couldn't get the votes needed to make this a reality.
