    I wonder how much of that loose change is "liberated" by TSA agents. If $376K makes it to TSA how much finds its way into the pockets of our diligent and trustworthy screeners.

    No doubt multiples more never gets counted. Maybe TSOs consider the money rightful "tips" for checkpoint action duty?

    This article spells out how much has been collected (presumably in addition to what is deliberately stolen & pilfered, not to mention what simply ends up in the pockets of nearby perverts) ...
