    Boston Globe: TSA airport seizures create new market: Surplus store offers up stuff that just won’t fly

    And with the holidays, the inventory in the store will swell, as the quantity and savviness of airline passengers changes.
    “With Thanksgiving and the holidays, you’re going to have more infrequent flyers, people who are less familiar with travel than your business travelers, which leads to more issues with the carry-on rules,” said Ann Davis, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration, which oversees airport security.
    TSA does not like to say they confiscate items. “They’re surrendered,” Davis said. “Passengers have options.”

    Options? Do you want to fly today, Zek?

    What fun! Just brings out that sleighbell ringin' jolly-time music:
    Their upscale brethren take our homes. TSA takes family silver and, of course, popular electronics. Someone's misery? Perhaps. But, hey, it's a new market!
