November 18, 2002:  "Why The Silence?"
Question from a Reader: "The AAL587 hearings came and went, but U.S. Read is silent about the matter. What gives?"
Answer: Still processing all the factual reports and docket info. There are over 1500 pages there. Basic updates/reports in re the Hearings are available from all sorts of news sources. USRead's approach is to dig deeper and we're doing that. The NTSB waited one year before releasing all this data. We just need a fraction of that time to gather some rational, informed reaction to the factual info.
Thanks for your patience and interest.
But you will hear from us soon. Stay tuned and thanks for writing.
