Buttigieg 'Joke' About Supply Chain Prior to Christmas Falls Flat
"It's hard to believe how incompetent and yet self righteous, this administration in this regime is. It is an awful combination of being deceitful, arrogant, and self righteous, and also incompetent. You combine those things together. You get Pete Buttigieg. And Pete Buttigieg, who, I promise you is not developed in a laboratory just to try to be a professional technocrat and bureaucrat on the behalf of the spokespeople of the tech companies. He does what he's supposed to do, you wind him up, you input the code and I am Pete Buttigieg, designed. Or the sole purpose of administering. Policy he makes a joke about how it will be difficult for families to get Christmas presents this year. That's mayor Pete, who's now the head of the transportation department, who literally have you ever drove through South Bend. It's like a war zone.

So holiday expectations management as we're looking at these supply chain issues. How bad are they going to get for Americans?

They're the ones who have all their list completed by Halloween. And then there's people like me who show up at the mall on Christmas Eve. If you're in that ladder bucket, obviously there's going to be more challenges. There will be challenges. And look, I think the I think Christmas, I actually think we actually might have one of the more satisfying christmases ever because I think the over materialism of Christmas is awful. So I'm a little bit contrarian with this, like they're gonna steal Christmas so you don't have toys. I actually think that it diminishes the true beauty of Christmas. That's my own, the best part of Christmas is family. And God and carnon Emanuel coming to the planet and understanding that. But I'm not going to diminish the fact that some 6 year old is going to have to get some Dollar General reused toy of some sort of 1994 like, oh yeah, we're gonna reuse this. Like, okay. So I'm not trying to make light of that. I'm not. But the over materialism of the Christmas season is always bothered me. It really

So What's Being Spent in the Infrastructure Bill?
"Abide Administration's infrastructure plan called for $20 billion, a variety of activist groups already demanding more Politicians often accurately cite crumbling roads and bridges to justify infrastructure spending. But in this case, crumbling roads and bridges would be the goal. Giving his largest share of new spending a mass transit and intercity rail as it does for highways, even though transit and rail account for a minuscule share of national travel. Because they're radical Cook base demands an equal amount of funding. For highways as it does for mass transit. The Senate bill spends $55 billion on local water systems. Which in many cases when mean bailing out city governments that neglected one of their core duties. Creates dozens of programs where Buddha says in transportation Department bureaucrats get to decide how to distribute over 100 billion worth of infrastructure grants. And Buddhist has his emphasis. He will prioritize the radical goals related to race and equity in such decisions. The most insidious of all is when the federal government elbows its way into the private sector. The Senate bill does so in two key areas energy and broadband Internet he combined 138 billion will go toward a variety of subsidies mandates government operated enterprise competing with private providers.

When will the West Seattle Bridge be fixed, and how much will it cost?
"Has been nearly a year since the West Seattle Bridge closed down because of the cracking concrete, and now we're getting some prediction on when it might be open again. Here's Chris Sullivan, and that prediction is the end of June 2022 that is the target goal for returning traffic to the West Seattle Bridge, But that's about a space Civic is the city can be. I would like to be very, very specific about the time and date when you will be able to drive across the bridge. I cannot give that to you today that Seattle's mobility director, Heather Marks, who also also cautions West Seattle residents that include herself that even when the repairs are complete, that doesn't necessarily mean the traffic is going to immediately return. This is not a repair where we're just going to drop tools when we're done and open up the bridge, too. Traffic. We want to make sure that this is safe and we want to be able to measure and see how the bridge and the repairs respond to additional live load. Drivers should expect that the lanes to will open little by little over the days and weeks after repairs are complete, primarily just for safety and to prevent backups. We also need to think about how to create the conditions under which when we open up that first lane Everybody doesn't you know, heard to the bridge and we have backups from follow. Right, Fareed I five. So we need to think about that to the city has reached the 30% design Fresh Holden milestone on this project, and the request for bids went public yesterday. It's gonna be an interesting partnership. The way that they're doing. This is that they're bringing the contractor on board at this point. That will allow the contractor the winning contractor to work with the city on final design, from 30% completion to the end that allows them to see any potential problems and design as they're doing it that also helps speed up the process. It's expected that the repairs we will begin in November, repairs to the lower Spokane Street Bridge or also included in this contract that needs a little shoring up works and cracked filling, and it also might need some repair to the center locking mechanism. Mark says. It is possible that there will be times when both the high and the low bridge will be closed the same time, But she expects those to be brief. To the extent that we have to close the low bridge. We're gonna aim for weekends or holiday weekends to make sure that we're disrupt. Thing as few people as possible. Now, Speaking of that low bridge discussions are ongoing about how to allow more access to that lower bridge on call. Medical workers have been added to the list of people who can use that bridge while racing to the hospital. But they end up getting it a photo enforcement ticket and then have to prove they were an emergency call to get that wiped away. Not really the most efficient way to do things. Seattle police have told me that automated photo enforcement issued more than 7500 tickets in the 1st 15 days of February. That's just a two week period. But since then, and more the word has gotten out. The city says that more than 2000 fewer vehicles a day are now using that bridge, which means okay, maybe we have a little extra capacity. And there's a big push right now to allow people who need life saving medical care like chemotherapy or dialysis to use the bridge, but The problem is Terminal five, is going to reopen for business on Harbor Island next year. And so the city is worried that if they allow more access now, they'll have to take it away later and they don't want to do that. They don't want to carry that. Briscoe start opening a lot more. We'll be exactly because they're going to see significant amount of freight traffic. And because of that, they're going to see the capacity go away. As for the money, the dollar figures in all of this $175 million is the budget. That covers the repairs to the West Seattle Bridge. The lower Spokane Street Bridge also includes the money already spent for the showing process, traffic mitigation improvements being made in West Seattle. The monitoring work city already has about 124 million of that, and it's aggressively looking for Mawr's, according to Sam, Zimbabwe, the head of the Transportation Department. We're moving are a lot of different paths forward. We don't project that funding is going to be the challenge that Holds us up in this, but we still have some some fresh holds across and make sure that we have the resources needed to bring this resource back online.

Let's check global news here on daybreak Asia and he's in the Bloomberg 9 60 newsroom in San Francisco head, aren't they all these days are indeed Yeah, that's it. We're on a sprint marathon every day. After a call with President Joe Biden. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says the number one job together is to blunt the expanding power of China. UK Foreign Minister Dominic Raab is talked with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says their shared priorities on China and Russia. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says if things go well, It looks like March 8th for some school re openings. Hong Kong setting up 18 community vaccination centers as it sets up its vaccination distribution plan to begin late February head of the CDC. US vaccine distribution expanding quickly, she says today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has now lifted restrictions on most hot spots across the state. Declaring an end to the post holiday surge warning there could be another button end of this one. Ah. U S President Joe Biden focused on climate change today re tighten the so called tailpipe restrictions in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter, This is Bloomberg. All right, you guys back to you, Jules. Thank you so much. Ed. Let's get now to retired Navy Admiral James Stavridis. He is also former military commander of NATO and Bloomberg opinion columnist and friend of this program here to discuss why President Biden needs to prepare for the next big hag. So, Admiral, we're talking here about the fact that we had this breach of solar winds court by suspected Russian hackers. You're saying Essentially, this is something that kind of went a little bit unnoticed in admits the inauguration, But it is something that we should be very closely watching for in terms of you know how the nation is going to be kept safe here in cyberspace. Let's start by just looking at the scope and scale of this hack. Really? We haven't seen anything like this clearly conducted by the Russian intelligence. Military services. They hacked into 400 of the fortune 500 companies, They hacked into all of the U. S military services. Hacked into essentially every department of the U. S government. Now at this stage, Juliet Think that military context is kind of carpet bombing. They've gone in. They've looked around. They've launched a few individual shots, but what we have yet to see is The degree to which they will use this, you know, precision guided way to go after government commercial entities are big companies of banks, our electric grid. We've not heard the last of this. It's a big deal, and by the way, I'll close by saying President Biden correctly mentioned this today in his call with President Putin. Saying This is unacceptable behavior in a coolie is so to use the military analogy and going a step further. Obviously, there's the defensive position and fortifying What needs to happen? I guess in terms of the infrastructure that needs to become more robust to prevent something like this in the future, But I'm wondering on the off offensive side. Is there a way To retaliate either through sanctions or or some other path. Indeed, there is in you Put your finger on it. If you think about the Cold War and you ask yourself, why did the Soviet Union nor the United States ever use nuclear weapons? It really was not because of defenses structures it was because of deterrence. Each side knew that the other had the capability to launch a devastating attack. So step one for the Biden administration is simply to make it clear the Russia That we will respond. We will respond at an appropriate in proportional level and that if Russia chooses to escalate this confrontation in cyber We will match them. So this is the task of the Biden administration going forward. It's going to be challenging. Here's the good news done. We have the capability. To match Russia step by step or a bit ahead of them in this curve, and I think we need to put that in play and avoid a future attack like this. Focus through some of your thoughts here about how that can be done because you're talking about perhaps splitting up the N s A and cyber command and also bringing back one of the commission's former directors. Indeed, one thing to focus on and not encouraged listeners who are interested in this topic. Toe look at what is called solarium report like Solar Solari in report. It's just completed is bipartisan conducted by the Congress and looks at the nation's cyber security. Two key recommendations. Follow one is this idea you just mentioned of dividing the National Security Agency and intelligence cyber operation. From the U. S Cyber Command the military operation. Look, We don't have the Department of defense in the CIA working for the same person. We shouldn't have. In cyber intelligence. That's the NSA. And the military side Cyber Command working for the same person divide those They're two very big jobs. The other big idea is creating the cyber force. We have a space force. Something Trump administration did. I think it was a good idea, Maura. Important is that have a cyber force, a small group? The U. S military personnel who are focused on defending the nation in this area. Admiral. To what extent? Does the government need the cooperation of I'll use the term Silicon Valley, America's high tech industry. I mean, is this something that they the government has the potential to go alone? Or do they need cooperation and help from the private sector? Without question. The government cannot do this alone. It's because the entire cyber sphere is so woven into the fabric of our society. So you're absolutely right down. At a minimum, they need strong cooperation from Silicon Valley. I'll take it a step further listeners here on Bloomberg there really need cooperation of the financial sector of the major financial institutions. In the nation. The big banks the big mutual funds, all of whom have an important equity in protecting themselves in cyber, and it's. Beyond that. It's the transportation grid. It's the medical system. It is our educational systems. All of these elements need to step up and contribute. So this is the ultimate teams for you're not gonna have an M V P. Most valuable player. The government just come in and protect you. Not gonna work that way. It's got to be private, public cooperating together. Noticed cybersecurity. But a lot of other international security issues the button administration is facing just quickly talk us through some of the key ones that you would think would be on top of the president's agenda. Give you a free that I think are top of mind. One is Iran and whether or not to re enter the Iranian nuclear deal. That's a controversial topic. Would take us a while. The unpacking Joe all that, But I think how we deal with Iran will be very much at the top number two getting closer and re establishing firm cooperation with our European allies, the European Union. Number three. In that regard how we face China how we face the rise of China. How do we establish a policy of confronting where we must, but cooperating where we can? Because both U. S and China Big equities in a functioning international system..

But now you're gonna have to pay the pet feed to travel him. And it's going to produce like $60 million a year, they say for the airlines.

dealing with this issue of the fact that transportation and remained for transportation change completely in the last three months for example if people they help high we drove into DC but let me tell you I don't recall what kind of projects moving quickly right being at home for the most part now the question is when we come out of that what's it like the people who telecommute more or is their complete return to the workforce what exactly is the demand for transportation with pandemic so you know so you got that and then on top of that the fact that on December thirtieth across highway bill expires we need to pass a new one Congress needs to pass and it went by that the help the help the Senate both have built houses also marked up their bill next Wednesday I believe in the Senate has a bill that has passed through committee that took me last July neither of these really fully a giraffe you know this would be sort of sweeping change at least in part because they're quite your bill so it's really hard to predict five years from now soon boy I did the points that were brought up in the arguments just seem very difficult to track the folks who may not want to be on a subway and therefore take to a car so critical I mean roads could be more crowded or so many people going to work from home now following this that we don't need to pour the money that we thought we did into infrastructure I eat I wouldn't begin to know how to start planning that well yeah usually I mean the transportation demand usually serve a known commodity right necessarily certainly can penetrate their business will have that sort of growth I mean you can project that in a typical time but the problem is we're not really in a difficult time and so that there is the rough now I what I want to make sure that I added that the health bill actually you know refers to the pandemic include eighty three point one billion dollars basically to highlight and transportation departments and external big policy changes for the first year of the bell kind of making up for the fact that there is a pandemic and making up for the fact that there is a recession they do inject the money but the thing is

lot of the more fiscal conservatives will thank what we refer to create long term jobs with a dozen third reshuffle their argument is that the reshuffle the economy basically anywhere you have to sort of hide higher skilled construction focus shifting to another but nothing really permanent now there's all the studies that indicate that the other unit that communism better very key part of that the argument for infrastructure or for a massive investment in infrastructure saying this is a good way to sort of change the economy during our really really well at the time and that's what we did in fact in two thousand and nine during the last recession there is a level of debate to the degree to which then you look at current yeah so busy back up one second kind of finish with this whole idea of will we know at some points that changes that we're seeing now have become permanent but I don't know what kind of kind of time line might experts put on that well you know that's I mean that's

The Austin transportation department wants you to weigh in on their vision for congress avenue downtown and the downtown Austin alliances promoting this draft plan for the future of congress avenue. Mike Lee has an office in eighth in congress. And well, here's what he had to say right near Boston to council and Wadi. Their idea right now, you're going to be doing, you know, we're watch citizen input which is always rate because we already know what the answer is going to be kicking lanes away from congress avenue, either dedicated bus lanes dedicate trolley lanes with the main thing is they don't walk courts downtown how long before congress avenue from the capitol to the river is pedestrian only just one big old sidewalks one big side. Just one big sidewalk. Sure sounds like that's what the city would prefer picnic tables. Maybe maybe a bus light. Maybe maybe all you got to have some way for services to get in and out, you know, -mergency services and deliveries and the like, but I don't there were no deliveries made on congress avenue. Are they sure you got businesses down there? They gotta have businesses down there. But they don't think they deliver on congress avenue. They deliver in the alley behind the business. They take delivers. Well, well, maybe. Yeah. Whatever. But I don't think your prediction is unreal Listrik at all for this city. I don't see that. I mean when I think of that idea. Well, it is kind of cool, but it's not meant for us. Because those of us that I live in south west Austin, you live in Leander is not meant for us to come down there. I will be reminiscent one day about the the good old days when we could go downtown and park a car and go do stuff downtown. It's meant for the folks that live downtown that's all they're focused on the rest of us on the edges. We'll figure it out. You got a part near there and walk in basically. Yeah, I bet some of those businesses on congress avenue would love for the cars to go away. Really? I bet I bet. I'll bet Cooper's barbecue mix most of its business from people walking there. Oh, I know. I I agree. I don't know that for fact, I just assumed that I mean, you got all the business people down there. You've got the they'd but up right against to the Marriott hotel right there. Well, he son Mike Lee be talking about congress avenue. But but that's not all also planning on taking.

You know, Laney it's gonna be back if you're too oh. On the city. Exam far but backed up pretty far Mike leaving their smoke with KLBJ Eric likely a lot of this is his opinion. A lot of this is his cynicism. He's pretty cynical about this. And I am too. I think it's more than opinion. He's the kind of guy that goes to these transportation meetings. And he here's what they have to say. And he's not exaggerating. They don't want cars downtown. I yeah. I don't mean to say that he is not inform. He certainly is. We just haven't seen a there's no final plan for anything like this. But I think what he's saying is completely realistic downtown. Here's me the downtown Austin lions, and the transportation apartment are floating this draft plan that does call for removing lanes on the roads that he mentioned, and if so there's no doubt about it that space is that confirms that there's no doubt that they're not a fan of our cars. They don't want to sit in the cars, and we have no business being downtown. If we are in a car, in fact, I'm not even sure that they give a rip if south. With west Austin? If Austin if west Austin comes downtown or not because it's just not they're not thinking about us. We're we're not we're not a part of the conversation here at all absolute they want you to live downtown. They want you to live on top of each other. They want you to pay way too much money for rent.

"With two seven thirty seven max flights one that crashed earlier this month in Ethiopia and another that went down in the Java sea last October. There were no survivors in either disaster today senators wanted to know whether the FAA has become too cozy with Boeing, and whether there should have been more pilot training joining us now is NPR's Jim Sorolla. He's been watching all of this. And Jim, obviously, the crash investigations are still going on. But this is the first time senators could really put these questions to the FAA, right? And it was Daniel l well these acting head. Yeah. And yeah, it was mostly a polite here he spent much of much of his time. Trying to explain the FAA's system for. Inspecting and certifying changes to plane design on this has been very controversial because both both of the planes. That crashed seemed to have trouble with this new computer system that Boeing installed that's supposed to stabilize the plane. I'm the FAA has a program in which it sometimes delegates to aircraft companies the responsibility to inspect themselves and what they do. The transportation department is now conducting an audit, and how how these changes were made in the case of the Boeing seven thirty-seven max so L, well, he talked about that. He also tried to strive to ensure everybody about the overall safety of the aviation system. US regulators have been criticized for not grounding, the seven thirty seven max right after the second crash as other countries did did LL address that. Oh, yeah. He did. He talked about how the year after the first crash. The agency was in the middle of investigating it. It'd been talking to Boeing about us potential software fix then. After the second crash. She said, yes, the US did take longer than other countries to take. Of this issue 'cause it wasn't one. Did you see the flight data and understand exactly what happened? He said. Other countries didn't do that. Here's what he had to say the important thing to know about using data. We may have been I think someone said the the last country to ground the aircraft, but the United States and Canada were the first countries to ground the aircraft with data. He said other countries actually came to the United States after after took this step and ask to see the data that the US had collected. So he was defending the sort of slower pace that that his agency worked at the other question and all this has been about the pilots. Right. Whether they had enough training on the new software installed. Dedi talk about that. Yeah. This is an issue that came up a lot. Because in both cases, the pilots seemed unable to control the planes, and they seem to have been caught by surprise when the stabilization system failed. The chairman of the committee is the subcommittee is Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, and he read from this kind of hair. Raising raider story about the last few minutes of the lion air flight when the pilots were frantically trying to consult a manual to figure out what was happening here was what cruise said that is not an image that instills comfort or confidence. And it does not suggest that the pilot is aware of how to correct the system that is adjusting the nose downward in the FAA had replied by saying that the investigators were looking into what happened with these pilots? He said the agency actually has a flight stabilization board in which a group of international pilots trained on simulators having deal with software changes. And in this case, they didn't feel the system was really any different than what they were used to. So the FAA decided no more training was needed. But that's something the FAA's looking into. That's NPR's. Jim zarroli? Thank you. You're welcome. Puerto Rico is pairing back food stamp benefits to the more than one million people who depend on them. That's because the island relies on Washington to fund its food stamp program. And congress has still not reauthorized that money legislation is now moving through congress to provide that food stamp aid. But President Trump reportedly told Republican senators yesterday that he thinks Puerto Rico has gotten too much aid since hurricane Maria struck the island a year and a half ago. We're joined now by Melendez. She's mayor of the city of Ponce, welcome. Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to talk with you. And the people of our mailing will thank you for taking the time to talk to us. You know, I was struck by the statistic that I read I understand forty three percent of Puerto Ricans depend on food stamps. I mean, that's like one point three million people what sort of impact have these cuts in aid had already. Well, let me tell you about forty seven percent of the people of Puerto Rico are below poverty. So forty three percent of those people need the food stem is key for for many moons. We have been asking and. Know that we the gorge region. People are American citizens, and we the search the say treatment at the rest of all the Americans Romay. Do I y and everywhere in between. What kind of stories are you hearing from people in your city? How are they getting through this time without enough food stamps right now? Yes. We're hearing is because people said they don't have enough money. People know they need those money. Why the food either? Even though they won't time. So they care. In his stability to them right now. President Trump has suggested he does support the six hundred million dollars for food stamps for Puerto Rico that's included in the disaster legislation. But so he says he doesn't want any more than that for Puerto Rico, more broadly. I understand that you have traveled to Washington several times to ask for more funding after Maria hit, what do you think of the president's reluctance to give more aid? We need the government to release the recovery phones. The and the federal government continues zainy funds through agencies for Puerto Rico recovery and investment will not only the people, but will resolve is saving for the federal government because we are every six months. From universe December the first season. Resilient houses. If we have the power of. And we will not have to ask for more money for the helping. I want to address what it seems like the president is concerned with a White House spokesperson told the Washington Post that the administration is just unwilling to put taxpayers on the hook to correct. A decades old spending crisis that has left Puerto Rico with big economic problems. Do you think there's any merit to that pushback? That taxpayers shouldn't be responsible for Puerto Rico's fiscal problems. We play more money than the Pacers Darlene in Malin, so. Need some places? So people have you understand that we all support? What we are. We'll have you received from FEMA all until now, but we cannot be left alone to fix this problem. We saw rollers support we need the support suffering. You understand that we are suffering after five we have never saw five you're against season. So. Daily structure was unprecedented. I hope the president is going to change his mind before it's too late for the people. We need to continue to work together as a nation. We need to be treated equally as part of the nation. Migita Melendez is the mayor of the city of Ponce. Thank you very much for joining us from it was a pleasure to talk with your. Thank you very much. We'd like to take a moment. Now to remember a man who story sparked an emotional response from many of our listeners the man was Gert Berliner, and the story was about Berliners cherished childhood. Toy a stuffed monkey smaller than the palm of your hand highlight Kim. He was like a good luck piece. This story aired last November was told by our NPR colleague Berliner, the son if Gert Berliner Kurt died this morning Gert Berliner had the toy monkey as a child in Berlin back in the nineteen thirties in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine Gertz mother sent him to Sweden to escape the Nazis. He could only bring one small bag. So the only keep he took with him was that stuffed monkey can you remember the days before leaving? What was going on? What you did? I was the only child just I too. The marriage of my parents was not the best. So I really I was my mother's all. And for her. To give up her child. Is a who roic? The. The pain that she must have been SU town. But she let me go. While Gert was living safely in Sweden. His parents MAC and Germany were sent to Auschwitz. They were murdered there. After the war Berliner moved to the US where he became a widely published documentary photographer and cinematographer all the while he held onto that stuffed monkey in two thousand three he donated it to the Jewish museum. Berlin, it was there. The monkey was discovered by another Berliner the descendant of one of Kurt's cousins, the cousins had lost contact in their separate escapes from Nazi Germany, and it was the monkey that connected Gert with his family here. They are talking last year. Yeah..

"Well explaining that decision to NPR nobody had data to act on it. It was all conjecture and in aviation the FAA the US has always acted on data that's bringing NPR's. Business reporter Jim zarroli who is going to be covering this hearing, Jim good morning. All right. So what do we expect? How tense is going to get? This is being conducted by the aviation and space subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee, and and they're going to be hearing from L. Well, also, the head of the National Transportation Safety board and the transportation department inspector general, and they're going to be talking about the whole process of how the this seven thirty seven max is certified the steps the government took to to stop the plane from flying after the crashes, but the planes went down in very similar circumstances right after takeoff. And in both cases, something appeared to go wrong with the computer system that was meant the was supposed to stabilize the plane when one of the looming questions, I know lawmakers and a lot of other people falling story have had is whether voting I mean, this major American company, whether it's it's too close to the government, whether the FAA might have thought about Boeing's potential. You know troubles. If. They grounded these planes. I'm sure those questions are going to come up. Right. Yeah. I think we can expect questions about Boeing's efforts efforts to train the pilots. Did they both in far enough? Do these. In both cases, the the planes were behaving erratically the nose was dropping in the pilots were trying to counter that but tragically they weren't able to. I think in general that the hearing will focus just on how well the FAA is able to regulate Boeing in hasn't left too many decisions about about safety up to the company itself. Should it be doing more and also doesn't have the resources to do more? I mean air travel has just gone so much more common over the years. And there are people who say the FAA's budget hasn't kept up. So just a lot of tough questions about the running of the FAA, and what its responsibility is right now. I know we heard a little bit of tape from a few minutes ago saying that, you know, his agency is one that just acts on data and basis decisions on data. Is that the essential message? We're expecting to hear from him today. Or or was message change. Well, we obtained a copy of his opening statement. So we know, and they basically he's gonna talk about how how the FAA. Certifies planes is safe. He's also gonna talk about the two crashes. You know, he he says after the first crash in Indonesia, the FAA order planes to instruct pilots in how to respond to stabilization problems after the second crash. It looked into the data didn't support grounding the plane, so at least until more information came in. So quest senators are likely to ask why it took the US so much longer to ground the planes and other countries did putting passengers in in this country in the air when others were not flying those planes anymore, right up. Here is Jim zarroli reporting force. Jim, thanks. You're welcome..
