With memories still fresh of a summer air travel season that easily ranked worst ever for delays, cancellations, lost baggage and general passenger misery comes word that federal workers have been breaking the rules by booking premium seats at taxpayer expense. Back in the cheap seats, where most taxpayers ride, the outrage is palpable. President Bush, who recently promised relief from the torture of the air, should include a crackdown on such abuses as part of his package. Now, that could be the fatigue and frustration talking.

LANDOVER -- Has the Washington Redskins' 31-year string of sellouts come to an end? That depends on whom you ask.The Redskins reported 78,270 tickets sold for the home opener of their new stadium yesterday, an impressive figure for any team. The team considers the game a sellout, despite having a stadium capacity of 80,116."This is a sellout," said Redskins spokesman Mike McCall.Because the only seats unsold were in the premium categories that carry an annual rental fee, they were technically not on sale for this game alone, and the team's record of selling every single-game ticket since 1966 stands, he said.
