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.

    Ah but too many times profit and/or instant gratification wins out. People want it now and if someone doesn’t jump to their wishes then they take their money elsewhere. We have become a fast paced world and expect things yesterday. Sometimes I find myself wondering what it was like in the horse and buggy day.
