You Choose! Winner and Losers!

Winning Story! Option #1 – TSA agents gave what one man calls "intrusive" pat-downs to passengers, including kids, who were getting OFF an Amtrak train in Savannah, Georgia last month.  Florida Fire Lieutenant Brian Gamble posted this video on You Tube. You can see the agents patting the kids down. Gamble says he was among about 40 people getting OFF the train who were ordered by TSA agents to be searched. Turns out there was a random search operation going on and the arriving passengers were accidently roped into it. The TSA has apologized for the inconvenience.

Option #2 – An Arizona high school teacher has been fired because of a bumper sticker on her car. It reads "Have you drugged your kid today?" The teacher, Tarah Ausburn, says society is over-medicating hyperactive kids.. and this is her way to protest. Some parents complained about the sticker and she was later fired when she refused to take it off her car. Right now she's fighting to get her job back. CNN link

Option #3 – A hug for a good Samaritan. Carl Shafer drove 700 miles round trip to retrieve and return a car to an elderly Ohio couple. The car was stolen several weeks ago and later found in Kansas City. But due to health issues, the couple couldn't go get the car back. So Shafer decided to lend a hand and get the car for them.. What a nice jester.. Click here to read more/see video
