Government can't follow its own regulations

49 more innocent people would be alive today if government followed its own rules. The Federal Aviation Administration has admitted that it violated its own rules by only having one air traffic controller in the tower at the Lexington, Kentucky airport from which Comair Flight 5191 took off using a runway too short for the plane, causing it to crash into some trees at the end of the runway.

Though Canada's government-controlled health care system is even worse then our government-meddled one, its privatized air traffic control system is far superior, because it actually suffers when it fails to produce results. Let's take a cue from the Far North and give our air traffic controllers a reason to care.
