"While exiting Boise (July 4) and heading back to Catalina, I thanked the TSA rep at the airport for her service on Independence Day," posts Dennis Mansfield. "'Happy 4th of July', I said.

Thank you for saying that to me.' TSA's concerned that they will offend people for this holiday and others as well? Like who?"/Dennis Mansfield. More here.
