Please take a moment to read this reporting of an interview with Captain Sullenberger. If you have followed his story, and seen the movie, you will know that he has seen both sides of the airline industry, and understands their political agenda.
I am not a fan of Katie Couric, but she seems to have asked the right questions.
Please pick up the phone and call your Congressman tomorrow (Monday) and register your opposition to H.R. 2997. It is important. Thank you.
