Grounded!

April 20, 2010

A cloud of volcanic ash has grounded flights throughout Europe.  This has caused enormous difficulties for thousands of travelers and cost businesses huge sums of money in added expense and in lost revenue.  There is increasing pressure to allow flights to resume quickly.

I hope that the pressure will not cause a premature lifting of the no-fly order.  I recognize the disruption caused by the grounding of all flights, but safety, not profit, should remain the primary concern.
