Wow you're fast Barb, I was actually on my way here to let you know about this.

Did you watch it? God that sleazy Roger Cohen guy, the President of the Regional Airline Association. It's scumbags like him who make air travel far less safe than it should be. I get angry listening to him, I can't imagine how you must feel.

"There is no airline, no matter what the business arrangement, that would ever operate any aircraft at any time and risk the safety of the passengers and crew so it's totally unrelated to any type of business arrangement."

He actually said that with a strait face.

Murray, thanks for stopping by! Hope you are doing well. I wasn't able to watch it, as I had an engagement that I had to keep. What a ridiculous statement from Mr. Cohen. Unreal. I think I'm glad I didn't see it, as it probably would just have made me angry.

Things are Ok, I got diagnosed with ADD and that explains a lot about my life so I'm trying different medications to get it under control. It's frustrating but I'll keep fightin.

Anyway, if you do decide you want to watch the program it's available to watch online here.

I think it was very well done and Miles O'Brien is a great reporter, I've watched him a lot during his CNN days.

Murray, not sure if you're around, but are you doing any better?
