Good News For Delta

Have to say congratulations to all the good people at Delta Airlines, especially my friend Scott. If you haven't heard, the pilots union agreed to a wage cut and concession package that could help to keep the airline from filing for bankruptcy. That's good news to the remainder of Delta's employees, who had been waiting to see if the pilots union would work to help save the airline or help kill it like they did Eastern Airlines so long ago.

(The unions didn't actually destroy Eastern, although they helped. If there was any single source of blame for the final ruin of the airline, that would be Frank Lorenzo. Look it up...)
