Can Nukees forcast near future national events?

I was thinking about how Gav's response with the paper cutting and his statement

"The only proper response to absurdity is strict blind compliance" matches well with American Airlines immediately taking all of their MD 80 planes out of service at the same time when the FAA said they needed to be inspected.

I'm certainly not surprised by AA's actions, that's for sure. And it's a common response by very powerful entities who are faced with what they see as absurd regulation. It's a way of flexing their muscle and making their point at the same time.

I'm reminded of that scene in "Amadeus" when Mozart is conducting a dancing part of his opera without music because the king forbid ballet in operas, and the king walks in to watch it and says, "This is absurd! Put it back the way it was!"
