From the Houston Chronicle:

Bus fire charges highlight contrasts

Drivers, pilots have the same legal responsibility but vastly different levels of regulation

When Dallas County authorities charged a 37-year-old illegal Mexican immigrant in the deaths of 23 elderly bus passengers, they said it was because a bus driver has the same safety responsibilities as a commercial airline pilot.

To infer from that article that pilots are "nothing more than bus drivers" because of similar responsibilities is a non sequitir.

Of course he won't. He is cheap foreign labor that fits in perfectly with the continued outsourcing of US jobs. The excuse used will be that we "need" him and many others like him to do the jobs that supposedly nobody else wants to do........:rolleyes:

Plus, we don't dare do anything non-"PC." Don't want to offend the voting immigrants.
