    Phil Robertson off suspension. A&E must have realized the family had no problem moving on and they over politically corrected. (Imagine Phil will also pre-check his sensitivity meter)

    Can you imagine if one third of the government actively tried to undermine the implementation of drones into the airspace? The standards would be a mess, it would be dangerous, it would be uncoordinated. In other words, despite the inevitability of it, they would choose to make it worse- even though it would be dangerous- rather than make it safer and better. That would be tragic.
