Well, not much to say about this other than has anything changed?  Where was the co pilot? Where were the other workers? When you are that drunk you smell like booze and you act different.  I can’t believe it myself.

In my book I talk about the movie with Denzel Washington where he portrayed a drunk cocaine smoking pilot.  I thought that this type of thing does not happen and was trying to make a point but I was wrong.

Addiction in the workplace, even in the most dangerous occupations that affect others is alive and well. They are praising themselves that this could have been bad but where were the checks and balances that they talked about? I will follow this if there is more information.
