Daily Donut



I sent this cartoon to the folks at TSA without really knowing what it might bring. I thought maybe they would find it humorous and post it somewhere (even just internally)

I received an initial response saying that they would respond and here is the second response I received from TSA. I’m afraid they think that I was proposing this as an idea for improving screening techniques:

Thank you for your e-mail message.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is composed of several component agencies which handle different types of acquisitions. For future reference, proposals for technology ideas or products may be submitted by following the guidelines available on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website at www.tsa.gov, under the “Join Us” link. Once these requirements have been reviewed and a determination is made that an unsolicited proposal is valid, then the proposal may be submitted to the appropriate point of contact listed on the website.

The offers of help and support from those willing to serve have been gratifying and are an important contribution to ensuring the safety and security on the Nation’s transportation system.

We hope this information is helpful.
