Seattle Times letters to the editor

Crash-landing on the Hudson River

Time to step in

Watching the TV-news reports on the plane landing in the Hudson River, I thought about the conservatives’ push to cut taxes and minimize government.

All passengers were rescued. By whom? The air traffic controllers (FAA), the New York police and firefighters, the FBI, etc.

In order to find ways to avoid such accidents in the future, the National Transportation Safety Board will spend months studying the crash.

I say, more government “interference,” please.

— Anne Thureson, Renton
