MacLean Appears On NBC Nightly News Special For The September 11, 2001 Attacks Anniversary To Compla

'We're not asking for more money,' says, who works as a marshal and asked not to be further identified. 'We're asking to do our jobs without worrying about getting our throats cut.'

. . .

First, say marshals, drop all dress code, hotel and flight restrictions so they can blend in. Then, buff up the service's prestige so it can attract the best applicants — with the goal of making America safer and with the safety of the nation's skies on the line.

Famous quotes containing the words september, attacks, anniversary, special, nbc, news, nightly and/or appears:

    Any one who knows what the worth of family affection is among the lower classes, and who has seen the array of little portraits stuck over a labourer’s fireplace ... will perhaps feel with me that in counteracting the tendencies, social and industrial, which every day are sapping the healthier family affections, the sixpenny photograph is doing more for the poor than all the philanthropists in the world.
    Macmillan’s Magazine (London, September 1871)

    I find that with me low spirits and feeble health come and go together. The last two or three months I have had frequent attacks of the blues. They generally are upon me or within me when I am somewhat out of order in bowels, throat, or head.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more
    John Adams (1735–1826)

    He’s leaving Germany by special request of the Nazi government. First he sends a dispatch about Danzig and how 10,000 German tourists are pouring into the city every day with butterfly nets in their hands and submachine guns in their knapsacks. They warn him right then. What does he do next? Goes to a reception at von Ribbentropf’s and keeps yelling for gefilte fish!
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)

    Whether lawyer, politician or executive, the American who knows what’s good for his career seeks an institutional rather than an individual identity. He becomes the man from NBC or IBM. The institutional imprint furnishes him with pension, meaning, proofs of existence. A man without a company name is a man without a country.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)

    I am sure that I never read any memorable news in a newspaper.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I nightly offer up my prayers to the throne of grace for the health and safety of you all, and that we ought all to rely with confidence on the promises of our dear redeemer, and give him our hearts. This is all he requires and all that we can do, and if we sincerely do this, we are sure of salvation through his atonement.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    Like the physical, the psychical is not necessarily in reality what it appears to us to be.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
