Timely article on the FAA's involvement with sleep schedules:
        "Union spokesman Doug Church said up to now, 25 percent of 
        the nation's air traffic controllers work what he called a 
        "2-2-1″ schedule, working afternoon to night the first two 
        days, followed by a mandatory minimum of eight hours for 
        rest before starting two morning-to-afternoon shifts, 
        another eight or more hours for sleep, then a final shift 
        starting between 10 p.m. to midnight.

        "Maybe we need to work in more time for rest," Church said.
        "You’re forcing yourself to work at a time when the body is
        used to sleeping."

There were 3-5 of us covering things for that added time. But, then,
the major operations were purely daytime, during the week. Graveyard
shift was
quiet enough that we surreptitiously bought a cot...

You didn't work for the FAA, Dave, did you?

No, or we would have gotten more sleep.
