Sopranos Meets FAA
The New York Times > National > F.A.A. Official Scrapped Tape of 9/11 Controllers' Statements:
The taping began before noon on Sept. 11 at the New York Air Route Traffic Control Center, in Ronkonkoma, on Long Island, but it was later destroyed by an F.A.A. quality-assurance manager, who crushed the cassette in his hand, cut the tape into little pieces and dropped them in different trash cans around the building, according to a report made public today by the inspector general of the Transportation Department.Furthermore,
The report also noted that the official who destroyed the tape had no regrets or second thoughts: "The quality-assurance manager told us that if presented with similar circumstances, he would again take the same course of action."I am dying to hear what Randi Rhodes has to say about this. And BTW, has anyone seen the air traffic controllers who made the tape recently? One sincerely hopes they were not chopped up and scattered around too.
Good afternoon, people. Went out for a short time, but the air was so soft and lazy I couldn't concentrate, and now is clouding up very heavily. Will try to finish the buttonhole row of the new sweater so I can cruise along the sleeves while watching "Friends" tonight, which is likely to be a bloated 2 hours of clips and ads plus 15 minutes of plot resolutions and teasers for the "Joey" show and possible special reunions and maybe even a feature length movie. So am not holding out much hope for a pleasant evening.
My last sweater photo is buried somewhere in the archives, so will post a link on the side to make it easy to find for all my Knitters Against Bush pals out there. Also, would like to find a button that has Bush's face with a pair of knitting needles crossed over it. May try to Photoshop one later on, but it may take until the election for me to get it done. So, if anyone knows of one, let me know.
