keep the change

(Joshua Masayoshi Huff)

You know that change that you leave in the trays at the aiport security checkpoint? Yeah, well, in under four years, all of America's airport change has turned into one million dollars. It's like the world's best Coin-Star or something.

And the TSA is keeping all of it. Don't we already pay high enough taxes? I mean, airfares are so high because of oil prices, and now we're being forced to pay to take our luggage on the planes and to pay for beverages on planes...on top of fuel surcharges.

It's time for the government to give back to us. How about giving some of that to all of America's travelers for the next year? I mean, it is our money.
