The unfriendly skies

I'm way late to this, but it's a slow day and I'm still fascinated by the story of the Jet Blue flight attendant, Steven Slater. He'd had enough of an unpleasant passenger. He popped the plane's emergency chute, grabbed a beer and exited before his plane reached its Kennedy Airport gate.

I know it's wrong, but I find myself at least a little sympathetic to Slater. There are some rude passengers up there.

Thoughts?

UPDATE: The story has been animated by the Chinese news animators.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
