Carr takes a swipe at FAA spokesman Greg Martin's comments, which appeared in our edition last Thursday. Martin told AVweb that many of *Jane Doe's* allegations are well-known to the agency and that the agency is working to place more emphasis on performance and productivity. Carr criticizes Martin for commenting at all on anonymous allegations and says that if the agency knows such activity is going on then the people who have failed to act on it should be fired. Carr also criticizes CRU-X, a computerized productivity-monitoring system under development by the FAA, saying it won't work if implemented as planned. Carr claims the FAA cheaped out on the CRU-X system by basing it on off-the-shelf software that can't handle the workload of anything but the smallest ATC facilities. He says the union has told the FAA that it won't oppose implementation of CRU-X provided it goes into every facility. So far the offer hasn't been accepted.
