  1. TSA counting cash…….
    Anyone who travels a lot should have concluded by now that TSA effectively pimps for the DEA (try packing supplements for a lengthy trip) and, likely, the treasury. I travel between the US and UK quite a lot and carry ziplok bag of UK coins (there is no one pound note any more) which are variously required for parking, the use of public restrooms, etc. If one thing gets my carry-on pulled for search it’s those coins. I suppose they want to make sure I don’t have a bag of dangerous gold dubloons….
    BTW though, common sense would dictate *not* toting such a wad of cash. To any LE officer this is like waving a bone before a hungry dog and inviting the to steal it, oh sorry, mistyped, I meant seize it from you.

  2. The story about a German FA winning a million Euros was entirely in German, as were the posted comments! WTF Gary! You seem to be having a mental meltdown today!

  3. The TSA turd was just looking for an opportunity to swipe a few hundred dollars. Wouldn’t be the first time.
