has airline passengers looking for any
way they can -- to save cash.



(SOT: NANCY TILLITSON / TRAVELER) - "I


WASN'T GOING TO PAY AN EXORBITANT
AMOUNT OF MONEY. SO I USED FREQUENT
FLYERS. THAT'S HOW I GOT AROUND IT."



Now, the airlines are turning to
passengers like Nancy Tillitson -- to
help 'them.'



This letter, signed by every airline's
president, was e-mailed to frequent
fliers. It asks them to help the
industry lobby Congress. Airlines want
legislation that cracks down on
speculators -- a group they blame for
the soaring price of oil.



(SOT: John Prader / AIR LINE PILOT


ASSOCIATION) - "IT IS DRIVING THE AIR
TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM OF THE UNITED
STATES INTO THE GROUND."



Organizers say they expect to generate
about a million e-mails to lawmakers in
three days.



(STANDUP BRIDGE: Susan Roberts / CBS
News / WASHINGTON, DC) - "the airlines
have already cut back the number of
flights they're operating, and tacked
on extra fees. Some small carriers have
gone out of business. And, executives
warn -- there will be more turbulence
ahead."



(SOT: James May / AIR TRANSPORT


ASSOCIATION) - "WE WILL HAVE
EFFECTIVELY LAID OFF 30-THOUSAND PEOPLE


BY THE END OF THIS YEAR AND THAT'S
UNFORTUNATELY THE FLOOR, NOT THE
CEILING."



The airlines expect to lose a combined
10-billion dollars this year -- solely
because of record-high oil prices...
And they want Congress and frequent
fliers to act now.

weeks about Brett Favre coming out of
retirement has usualy been followed by
an empahtic denial.


Not tonight.

*CG file NFL


It appears that Favre is now
asking the Packers to release him or
trade, so he can come out of his short
lived retirement and play for another


team.


ESPN is reporting that Favre
through his agent has contacted Green
Bay about such a move.


The 38-year-old future hall of
famer retired March 6th after a 17-year
career. The Packers have since moved
forward and they plan to use Aaron
Rodgers as their starter this year and
rookie Brian Brohn as a backup.

hoping to qualify under the brand

night, but several havy downpours
washed out time trials.

ESPN the sun must go down and look at :00 this beautiful sunset in Joliet
tonight.


Tony Stewart in the Old Spice
number 20 Toyota has had a busy week
and watch the move he puts on Clint
Bowyer to slip by him near the midway
point of the race.


But by the time this thing was
over it was another Joe Gibbs' driver
taking care of business.


Kyle Busch won his fifth
Nationwide series race of the season
dominating the final half of the race.


The win gives Joe Gibbs racing
its 13 wins out of the 20 races held
this year on the circuit.


Denny Hamlin another Gibbs' man
was second.

Golf Channel The talented lefty wasn't exactly
at his best today, in fact he was in
real danger of missing the cut.


That was before he mashed this
five iron on the 190-yard fifth hole.
The ball landed 12 feet short, bounced
once and rolled right into the hole for
a much needed hole in one.


Mickelson finished the day with a
67 and a 4-under 138 two day total. He
made the cut by just two shots.
