I see the Der Spiegel thread has been removed. It makes me wonder what the forum would have looked like when the ATC workers were fired, in the 80's, I believe. Would political comments have been accepted? I believe the dismissal of the controlers was inappropriate, to say the least, and almost devastated the industry. In order to remain objective, do you think you could post and not mention any names or political affiliation? In other words, did it hurt the industry, and how so?
Cameras shoot pictures. Guns shoot people. They have the guns.
