If only the Portland screeners had realized the thing was unplugged.

Because TSA screeners would never run a checkpoint with an unplugged machine.

This museum (or something very similar) is where TSA will eventually be remembered.

A TSA museum that does not include rooms full of confiscated toothpaste, bottled drinks, nail clippers and such is just a monument to brainwashing.

Or the Stasi Museum in Leipzig.

I find the idea of a museum dedicated to a government agency which has existed for only 10 years to be ludicrous on its face.

I find the idea of a museum dedicated to TSA to be morally reprehensible; it's an agency which has done nothing in its history but to harrass and curb the freedoms of anyone who wants to fly in America, and to waste billions of taxpayer dollars, while never detecting, apprehending, or stopping a single terrorist-related incident.

The only museum exhibit I ever want to see focused on TSA is one dedicated to egregious government waste that has been long since eliminated.

The TSA historian was a junior in high school when the agency was formed.

Can the public submit items like endless complaints that go un-answered as artifacts for preservation?

Attention politicians looking for items in the federal budget to cut: the position of "TSA Historian", while only a minuscule part of a single drop in the proverbial bucket, would be an excellent place to start.
