Helping the Terrorists. This post is completely self-interested. I fly a lot. I think the idea of having air marshals on board airplanes is sensible and notably increases my safety. I was horrified and astounded to read in the NYT today that these guys have a dress code that make them stand out so that anyone can spot them. There are no words to describe the lethal stupidity at work here. [ongoing]
well, i can't say i ever really cared. usually though, they are the ones standing way in the back trying to keep awake the whole flight…. or so i think.
