Now I feel safer !!!
 
"Air marshals to patrol trains, buses"

Don't run for the train or bus though. Rucksacks are also out.

Al-la-carte menus on the Greyhound will also now be plastic knives and Forks (until the 20th Dec anyhow).....

What next :beer:

"As of Wednesday, the Transportation Security Administration said, teams of undercover air marshals..."

"...The teams will consist of two air marshals, one TSA bomb-sniffing canine team, one or two transportation security inspectors and a local law enforcement officer."

Oh very inconspicuous.

Mummy who are those 5 men with guns, masks, covert armour and a big ass dog?
Oh they are just tourists dear.

What are they going to do to be 'undercover' - pretend the guy with the dog is blind ?

Don;t ask me why, but that was easier read in an accent that sounded more like 'Blackbeard the Pirate'... I'm having one of those days again.

Does the dog get it's own seat on the greyhound bus ? (This is going to get just as surreal as the 'horse nailed onto the wings of the plane' Air Marshal Thread).

Will there be any room left for passengers on the bus?

Maybe they could turn use those air conditioning units on the roof of the coach (I'm not calling it a bus), get rid of all the junk in it, and use the shell as a dog kennel for long journeys....
