Pete Buttigieg's Iowa Surge: 2020 Democratic Voters May Want Presidential Temperament | National Review
Large National Review Logo 1 hour ago
While that's a tribute to the success Buttigieg has had in campaigning in Iowa and the fact that he has strengthened his organization there, there is also an argument to be made that he is uniquely situated to do well in Iowa and that he is unlikely to replicate that success once the Democratic race moves on to states where there are more minority voters and fewer moderate whites who are impressed with his military record. Former vice president Joe Biden was supposed to dominate as the only viable moderate in the race, but while he has maintained his status as the leader in national polls, his poor debate performances, mediocre fundraising totals, and dismal polling in Iowa have given credence to the idea that he's a paper tiger. Perhaps what Democrats really want is a presidential temperament.

NTSB Suggests Fixes After Deadly Southwest Flight | Dallas Observer
Dallas Observer | The Leading In... 3 hours ago
The National Transportation Safety Board ended its nearly two-year investigation into Southwest Airlines flight 1380 on Tuesday with a recommendation that Boeing redesign the engine casing on one of its 737 models in order to prevent incidents like the one that killed a passenger and forced a crash landing in April 2018. NTSB officials blamed the jet's fan cowl, or cover, for failing after being hit by a cracked fan blade shortly after flight 1380 took off from New York City's LaGuardia Airport, headed toward Dallas Love Field. “This accident demonstrates that a fan blade can fail and release differently than that observed during engine certification testing and accounted for in airframe structural analyses,” NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said.
