Federal Police Authority

Almost 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it necessary to hire a private investigator - Alan Pinkerton - for protection. And that was the beginning of the Secret Service. Since that time, federal police authority has grown in depth, scope, and to a large number of multi-letter agencies - CID, OSI, NIS, FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, etc.

Now we have the "Federal Air Transportation Airport Security Service." Can't you see them now, these highly trained men and women in their black outfits with their initials in large white letters across their backs:

"FATASS" - I feel safer already, don't you?

  2. I like the BATF the best becaust it is a FOUR LETTER Acronym.

    I like the Airport Security people better now that I don't have to take my shoes off.

    Still have to do the full boddy X-Ray because of the titanium in my new knee joint.

    Did you know that the machine automatically puts a patch over your private things? :(( Last time I had an extra patch because I had left a handkerchef in my back pocket. Got cautht!!!
