At my home airport, GRR, the tower closes at midnight (or at least it used to do so, when I was flying). Landings and takeoffs were monitored remotely from the ARTCC in Illinois. All landings and takeoffs were completed successfully, to the best of my knowledge. They were handled professionally and with no delay or confusion. This is essentially what happened at DCA. This whole situation is tremendously overblown. No, the controller shouldn't have been sleeping. Yes, there are procedures in place to handle this type of situation, with everything under control and safe for planes and passengers. 'Nuf already!
