Flight Safety

"W e're supposed to feel safe flying again, now that we have those gun-toting air marshals sitting undercover somewhere on the airplane, sound asleep in their seats.

Yes, dozing, as in Zzzzzzzzzz.

And that's just the sleepy ones. Hundreds of others have been accused of lying, losing their weapons or testing positive for alcohol or drugs on the job.

In the span of a mere eight months in 2002, the government documented 753 such reports against air marshals. It's all part of a chilling report released Monday by the Homeland Security Department's inspector general."

And a teeny bit of good news.
