When the administration announced this plan to open up military airspace to passenger jets during the busy Thanksgiving travel season it sounded like a good idea to me, and I considered writing a post with a title like "Rare Good Bush Administration Idea."

Now Fallows says it's a scam and won't do any good at all: "it's like thinking you'll be able to fit 300 cars into a 200-space parking lot if you open an additional entrance ramp." More here.
