Frequent flyer makes the airways safe

After experiencing a near-collision on a plane in which he was a passenger, frequent world traveler Jim Sensenbrenner got on the phone with the Federal Aviation Administration to demand action, reports.

"Upon landing at Reagan National Airport, I immediately called the FAA to alert them of the situation and requested that they examine the conditions that led to this near collision over a heavily populated area," Sensenbrenner said in a statement. "While no one ever wants to be in such a circumstance, I am pleased that the FAA acted quickly to identify the error with air traffic control operations."
If he can get that kind of action, maybe we should consider sending him on a fact-finding mission to Afghanistan. If he came under fire, maybe he'd call the Pentagon and end the war.
