    Blogging Privatization

    Everyone is so quick to oppose everything, acting as if NATCA is leading or pushing for this bill. We're not pushing for it, simply making sure it's written with our best interest (and the NAS) in mind. It's got a decent amount of backing to it and if it were to actually happen then it's nice to...

    Apron Control
