You Write Too Long: This Week's Feature Bite-Sized



This week, "Trouble in the Air" -- Air traffic controllers don't look like John Cusack or Billy Bob Thornton, and even if they did get a date with Angelina Jolie they couldn't find time to have sex - they don't even get a ten-minute break. Reagan busted their union back in the '80s, Clinton patched it up, and now Bush Jr.'s Republican FAA chief is gutting it again. Controllers are worn out and worried about air safety. They can't even wear kilts to the office, fer chrissake. You'd be better off taking Aeroflot out of Irkutsk than Comair out of Kentucky. A great ad for auto travel, no matter how much gas costs.
