Liar, Liar Not a Flier

Now, this is one scary story, California has indicted 40 pilots for fraud after they falsified medical reports that would have grounded them. Things like schizophrenia and severe heart conditions, you know, the kinds of things that could end up killing several hundred people.

Fourteen of the 40 have had their licenses revoked and the other 26 may be suspended.

Folks, if you are working in a capacity where you are a caretaker for a whole bunch of other people and you have a serious medical condition that could result in you killing people, stop risking hurting other people! Stop thinking about yourself and think about all of those people you are putting at unnecessary risk.

Damn, it makes me want to give a breathalyzer to the pilot of the next flight I have to take.
