Government gone wild -- EPA wants to regulate airport use of deicing fluid?

C'mon man! The federal government can't be serious when it proposes to limit the use of deicing fluid because some of it flows off the runway into the environment.

As a passenger on many-a plane that had to be de-iced to safely take off, I object. And BTW: I think I speak for all passengers when I say that if we have a choice between air safety and saving a few bugs at the end of the DFW runway, we say screw the bugs. The vote was unanimous.

Paging President Obama ... anybody with any common sense at home?
