FAA Releases Bird Strike Database

For nearly two decades, the FAA’s collected information about bird strikes at the nation’s airports. The US Airways flight that made a safe landing on the Hudson – a double-bird strike took out those engines. Now the public will be allowed to find out about all of that. Today [Fri], the FAA is making public its entire bird strike database, but there's a hitch - airports are not mandated to inform the FAA about a bird strike. So just how accurate will the data be? And will the FAA mandate the information going forward? Also, what happens if passengers decide to make travel decisions based on what airports may have more problems with bird strikes than others?

John Mahoney - Retired Cop No More

For 11 years, actor John Mahoney played Marty Crane, the pragmatic, grumpy dad of Dr. Frasier Crane. When "Frasier" ended in 2004, he went back to his theater origins - appearing on Broadway in "Prelude to a Kiss," in Chicago Steppenwolf Theatre productions of "The Dresser" and "I Never Sang for My Father" and more.  He's on stage again in "The Seafarer," a darkly humorous tale by playwright Conor McPherson that explores the imagination, how we face the demons of our past and how we find redemption, now playing at the Geffen Playhouse.  Mahoney talks about his many varied roles in TV and film and his love of the stage that has brought him back to the footlights.
