    Just be be "fair", we're going to accumulate reports of TSA's good deeds.

    However, this isn't a invitation to scour the internet for ten years of TSA hype. It is limited to articles:
    1. Posted in "real" media (papers & broadcast stations)
    2. Posted after TUG created (6 June 2011)
    3. Events must appear to warrant at least local media coverage no matter who the actors are (simple courtesy, e.g. "TSA help me carry my bags" doesn't count although it does seem beyond reach for many of them)
    Links must be accompanied by a brief description. Standalone links & stories that don't meet the above criteria will be summarily deleted.

    Here's good deed #1 (being lazy I'm just copying & pasting the Google News list):
