    If you have seen any of the news over the weekend, you know that there was a terrible act of vandalism committed in setting a fire at a FCC air traffic control center. This caused hundreds of cancellations and delays over the weekend at Chicago’s O’Hare airport. They are working to get them back on schedule, but there are still many stranded passengers. To help with the ATC overload, they are transferring employees from the affected Aurora facility (where the fire was) to the other ATC centers around the area. Officials are saying that it will be until October 13 before the damage is repaired and delays in the area could last until that time. That is a problem for a lot of travelers/commuters for sure, but it could also really snarl up a lot of people who are flying into Chicago for the Chicago Marathon (which takes place on October 12). The Chicago Marathon is hard enough to get into anyway (a packed lottery) and to have to miss it...
