Kid directs air traffic

Link to WSJ article

I love listening to Channel 9 as much as many travel aficionados, but I’ll admit I’m not the best multitasker and therefore I would not do well as an Air Traffic Controller.  Considering how many flights are in JFK airspace I have to agree that it is reckless to allow a child to assist with ATC no matter how well the child knows chatter.  Even though a lot of ATC instructions, especially on the groud, appear to be repetitive that doesn’t mean take the kid to work and let him do it.
