Hmmmm....if memory serves me correct (which I admit isn't always the case) I seem to recall an announcement about a year ago at this time regarding VATUSA joining forces with the FAA to provide ATC services during sequestation. I'm still waiting to see what facilties we're being assigned to...........Let me check, yep still 4/1/14.

I'm going to open another beer.

Stop stealing my chads while you are at it...

You actually did have me Don, up until the point of Bob "candy coating" things.  That made as much sense as the boys in the band ordering boat drinks - everything seems to be wrong ( to quote Jimmy Buffet ).      

The Mike B. part did make sense though

Glad to know I was the first one on his mind when I got a weird email this morning asking if I was up at 1am last night... LOL!

Wonder what the reaction would have been if everyone started responding "Don's leaving? Thank God..."
