 As controllers, we are required to issue traffic to converging aircraft
while using mimimum seperation: (enroute, it's 5 miles lateral, and 1,000'
vertical, except above 29,000, where it becomes 2,000' vertical).
 The other day is issued traffic to a hip pilot enroute to MSP from LGA as
  "Global (not!) Air 244, traffic 1 o'clock, ten miles, southbound, flight
level two eight zero, a Fokker".
  His response nearly broke me up! 
  "Cleveland, I've been waiting years to be able to say this...I got that
Fokker in sight".
  Don't blame me.....I voted for Bush!
