Drunk pilots?

United Airlines Pilot Arrested For Being DRUNK Before London-To-Chicago Flight HuffPost - http://bit.ly/16mf9a

I recognize the need for sobriety in the cockpit. There's a whole lot of bad that can happen up there with just a very few poor decisions.

Like sleeping through the approach to the airport?

Nonetheless, .02 blood alcohol smacks of nonsense. Is this an exercise in zero tolerance? I suspect it is. Granted, we have to draw the line somewhere, and right now that line is at zero.

Frankly, I worry more about the taxi driver.
