Is ALPA running the DOJ?

I still can’t get over the DOJ’s ridiculous opposition to antitrust immunity for Continental, but as I thought about it, the words sounded all too familiar. Then I remembered an article a reader sent in late last month written by Captain Steve Wallach, United’s top union dog (I refuses to refer to him by his job title, the master chairman of the United Master Executive Council of the Air Line Pilots Association… what I’d give to see what his business card looks like!). If I didn’t know any better I’d say the DOJ based their opinion exclusively off of Captain Wallach’s article, without giving much consideration to other viewpoints, like the excellent article William Swelbar wrote in response to Captain Wallach’s article.

Anyway, just thought the similarities were worth noting.
