From Southeast Missourian
This is funny for two reasons (I hate to explain a joke.) One, nobody was hurt at all, so, fair game. Two... Reagan National Airport? Named for the guy who hobbled - nay, decimated - the air traffic control union?
Should jetliners be landing with only a single air traffic controller on duty -- even if he's awake?
Federal officials are grappling with that question following the safe landing of two jetliners this week with no help from the lone air traffic supervisor on duty at Washington's Reagan National Airport. He's been suspended, and safety investigators say he has acknowledged he was asleep.
