Meantime, the sudden resignation of Florida Congressman Mark Foley over inappropriate emails sent to a young former Congressional page, is raising lots of questions about the House page program.

If you are one of those airline travelers who are comforted by the sight of a silver-haired, well-seasoned looking captain in command of your flight you'll be interested in a new push to raise the FAA's mandatory retirement age for U.S. commercial airline pilots. As it currently stands, pilots cannot operate a commercial flight after they turn 60.

I'd be pleased to have you join us tonight.
