    I saw this earlier, and also got a chuckle out of it. :)

    The comments sections on these articles (or any kind of articles, really) aren't worth reading for the most part.

    unless one wants to gain a slight insight into the wacko beliefs of a slice of our populace, some pretty scary & funny (in a sad way) views.

    I won't start a new thread because you guys may be growing weary of me starting so many linking to the Dallas Morning News Blog. However, the reporter, Mr. Maxon, has added a new item to his blog today which is quite interesting:

    http://aviationblog.dallasnews.com/...xplains-why-aa-is-having-so-many-delays.html/

    Basically, he heard from a long-time pilot who, as I read it, doesn't really seem to think the reports are frivolous so much as long-time pilots knew how to handle the situations and wait for them to get bad and now they aren't doing that. The pilot also says that with some occurrences, long-time pilots know how to "fix" an error indication through their own black magic, rebooting of the system, and whatever, and now without a contract are refusing to do that, but writing them up for maintenance instead. The memorable slogan for this, the pilot says, is "No Bucks, No Buck Rogers." I think I won't be forgetting that term anytime soon :)
