Spread the word...

This article appeared in yesterday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
“The nation's largest flight attendants union on Wednesday came out against a dress code that it said is ‘forcing federal air marshals to dress like stereotypical G-men.’
Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) also spoke out for the first time against the dress code, which is coming under increasing fire for exposing the undercover marshals.”

I’ve heard about this issue before, as I’m sure you have. People tend to dress comfortably, and thus casually, when flying. A guy in a suit sticks right out. It’s hard to believe this policy hasn’t been changed yet.

But I’ve got an idea. Next time you fly, get a fresh haircut and wear a nice suit and tie. If you’ve got long hair or a beard, at least make sure they're well-groomed. Dress like you’re going to a job interview. Ladies too. If the government won’t change its policy to help our air marshals blend in, the rest of us had better give them some cover.

Imagine you’re a terrorist looking to murder people; you get on the plane watching for someone dressed like a fed, and instead of one or two you see five dozen of them. Like the big guy says: a pack, not a herd.
