    .......I heard they fired her immediately? If she was sick or something she should be given a hearing?

    Wow. To listen to that is chilling, when you think of what could have gone wrong. I’m sure glad nothing really bad happened. I sure feel sorry for the controller that had the stroke.

    Yeah, nothing was said of her condition. It almost sounded like half her face was frozen while talking, similar to 'Bell's Palsy' although I heard her laughing/chuckling at times. Hope she wasn't high or something stupid. If she was high, why did the other controller go on break? The FAA are idiots for not having at least 2 controllers on duty at all times (3 per/fulltime), especially McCarren in a city with hardly any clocks

    ...and yet the pinhead "regulator" has driven down the controller numbers so far that many cabs still only have one person on at a time! If she would have died, what excuse would the "regulator" made up to CYA?? SAD!!

    Sequester excuse, even though President Trump ended that Obozo concocted crap.
