Child Directing Traffic at JFK

Did you read the report about the air traffic controller who brought his son to work and let the son give directions to the pilots?

I heard the tape. It's all on the internet and the story can be found here. The controller and his supervisor have been suspended.

The child was supervised, was very professional, and the pilots certainly had no problem with this. I have no idea what the outcome of this will be but, if the pilots were comfortable with the transmissions, would you be upset? The FAA obviously is.
