Uh oh's in store for TSA

This report on foxnews.com does not reflect well on the Transportation Security Administration.
    The government agency in charge of airport security spent nearly a half-million dollars on an awards ceremony at a lavish hotel, including $81,000 for plaques and $500 for cheese displays, according to an internal report obtained by The Associated Press.

    Awards were presented to 543 Transportation Security Administration employees and 30 organizations, including a "lifetime achievement award" for one worker with the 2-year-old agency. Almost $200,000 was spent on travel and lodging for attendees.

Wonder who was the planner on that one? Though $500 for cheese doesn't sound too bad to me--what's that, less than a buck a head? I'd be curious to hear more of the story behind this story.
