>>> well, as we reported here friday night when congress finally acted to fix the air travel delays as a consequence of those sequester forced budget cutbacks, it wasn't so much a profile in courage as it was sheer customer service . washington had managed to anger everyone who flies. the delays ruined a lot of plans. but they passed a bill that fixed the problem last week. now a new problem, it still hasn't been signed by the president because there was a typo in it. one word is missing a letter. so, like the flight delays, congress will now fix the bill and try to get it signed tomorrow.
