NSA Tries Appealing to Kids

The National Security Agency (NSA) is using cartoon characters to try to teach young people about its work, and to encourage them to someday join the agency.

From the NY Times article:

“The turtle wearing a hat backward, baggy jeans and purple sunglasses looks just like other cartoon characters that marketers use to make products like cereal and toys appealing to children.

But the reptile, known as T. Top, who says creating and breaking codes is really “kewl,” is pushing something far weightier: the benefits of the National Security Agency.”
