Just call me "Foxcraft"

The post on "Renegade" led me to this: Get your own Secret Service code name.

Also, two commenters noted that it seems silly to have Secret Service code names that everyone knows, but the Chicago Tribune claims that "the monikers are a throwback to a time when electronic communications were not encrypted, and they no longer serve a security function."

Whatever. I still like to picture some big burly dude in sunglasses talking into his watch and saying "Renegade is on the move, repeat, Renegade is on the move."

That's interesting--my husband and I *were* wondering about the point of code names that are announced by the media.
