Gotta look sharp
The men and women protecting America's airlines have been instructed to look sharp during the Republican convention. Between Aug. 29 and Sept. 3, "all New York federal air marshals will be required to wear coat and tie on all domestic missions," wrote New York Special Agent-in-Charge Felix Jimenez in an E-mail to marshals on Friday.
But some marshals - who object to the overall policy of looking official instead of undercover - were outraged.
"They want all these people going to the convention to know there are marshals on the flights," said one of the sky cops. "It's just a big public relations stunt."
