Life is hard when you're Darth Vader's less-talented, less-charismatic younger brother and you manage a grocery store.
I ran into Chad Vader on the show floor at Blogworld. For those of you not familiar, he's Darth Vader's younger brother who is a day shift manager at a grocery store called Empire Market. We talk about his goals, his passions, and of course his brother. If you didn't see the Chad Vader promotional video I was a part of for Blogworld, it's embedded below. Chad Vader's Site

How many air traffic controllers does it take to land a plane? Washington is trying to figure that out -- after a half dozen different incidents of controllers nodding off on the job.
CNN reports, as a result, the head of the FAA’s Air Traffic Organization’s Hank Krakowski has resigned.
“Krakowski’s resignation comes amid growing controversy over napping air traffic controllers. The latest occurred Wednesday morning at Nevada’s Reno Tahoe Airport when a medical jet was attempting to land with a sick patient. It is the sixth reported incident this year of a sleeping air traffic controller.”
WGN has video of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood saying things will change.
"This is ridiculous, it's outrageous, it's the kind of behavior that we will not stand for at the Department of Transportation. The controller has been suspended, we're conducting an investigation and I have said that immediately there will be two controllers in 27 control towers around the country that control planes between 12 midnight and the early morning hours."
Now critics are lining up to ask, what kind of change is that? Fox News interviews former FAA spokesman Scott Brenner who suggests, it’s the controllers’ union who’s the blame -- not the FAA Chief.
“For him to offer up this political killing for some controllers who have fallen asleep, and have not practiced this professional responsibility that they should have done, is really unfortunate.”
“But I think if you talk to the average American, saying, you know what? If you can’t do your job, we’re not going to fire you, we’re going to bring someone else in to help you? I think most Americans would think that was a pretty ridiculous solution.”
The blog -- AVWebInsider -- agrees, saying, this is a typical government response when things go wrong.
“Only could the U.S. government, in response to a labor situation in which the job is so boring and low key that workers can’t stay awake to do it, double the workforce. … [I]t does not address the professional dereliction of a six-figure salary government employee sleeping on the job.”
But The Reno Gazette-Journal’s Jason Hidalgo says -- look -- having only one controller on the job is just not smart.
“At most airport towers nationwide, the cab -- the room on the top of the tower -- has no bathroom. With only one controller on duty, the position has to go unattended at times if the controller needs to use a bathroom.”
But on ABC -- the discussion turns to bare-bones and swing-shift staffing -- which besets many controllers.
“Now there’s a broad issue here – that of fatigue. It’s not just working the overnight shift, but controllers bounce between day shifts and night shifts, your body clock just cannot adjust, the FAA and the Union have been talking about this for more than a year, it now takes on added urgency.”
