I've recently learned that Texas is twice as big as California (
), yet we have only a single air marshal located in (I think) Dallas/Fort Worth. I've never met him! I've been a dues-paying member for 15+ years and still never been to a local or semi-local tech day nor barley therapy. The distances between cities make riding and meetups prohibitive and unenjoyable (think post-apocalyptic wasteland), and serve to separate Airheads into distinctly urban camps: El Paso, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston.
Why not several Air Marshals? I see that California has a similar program and California is a teeny tiny state!
