Re "FAA delays closing airport towers — including at Ogden, Provo" (Tribune, April 6):

In response to the sequestration mandate of automatic federal budget cuts that went into effect on March 1, the Federal Aviation Administration determined that federally funded air traffic control towers at 149 small airports will be closed for the remainder of the 2013 fiscal year, now beginning in June, including towers in Ogden and Provo.

Everyone I know who owns their own airplane believes that this will be very inconvenient for them. Please, America, let's end this sequestration madness!
