    My daughter is a therapist hired by the DOD to care for returning GIs. She is getting her work time restricted because of the sequester. It seems to me that Congress reacting to whining airline passengers amounts to dereliction of duty in light of GIs committing suicide and waiting what amounts to years to get claims of disability considered. I want to hear the news report on the obligations of government with more serious consequences than a delayed or canceled airline flight.
