Almost 150 yrs. ago, President Lincoln found it necessary to hire
a private investigator - Mr. Alan Pinkerton. He was actually the
beginning of the Secret Service.

Since that time federal police authority has grown to a large number of three-letter agencies - FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, SS, ATF, etc. Now comes a proposal for another agency: The "Federal Air Transportation Airport Security Service."

Can't you see it now, the new service in their black outfits with their initials in large white letters across their backs? FATASS.
