A Day to Remember

August 3rd, 1981.

The day that PATCO, the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization went on strike.

Here and here are a couple of posts that are good reading. If you read the comments that are associated with the posts, be warned: my brothers and sisters are very passionate about their careers and often express themselves with language that you wouldn't use in church! The video clip with the second article is a stark reminder that things are more the same today than they are different, and any difference is worse than it was twenty-six years ago.

Here is another article from an independent travel site that may make you write to your Congressman or reconsider your travel plans.

Four years, five months, three days.
