Help TSA Design a Better Checkpoint and Win $15,000!

The TSA is asking the public to help redesign their queues and they are offering rewards up to $15,000 for the best ideas!

Those interested in submitting a proposal for the TSA’s “Next Generation Queue Design and Model”, can do so through InnoCentive. The deadline is August 15th.

So stop complaining ……….. now you can be part of the solution …….. and get paid for it!

TSA fees double today!

You may not realize it but you are paying double today to support TSA! Yes TSA fees (tax) is being increased! I wonder what we will get for our extra dollars? I have always felt that there is a lot of waste in the TSA, and I really do not see that by doubling the fee we are going to solve any security issues. Why don’t we just use common sense and “profile” during the screening! I know we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feeling. If the issue where white, 65 year old males, a little over weight, short gray hair, and about 6-1 in height ……… I would not have a problem with being profiled for extra screening! But instead we all are screened and they always seem to have to confiscate my little Swiss Army pin knife!
