Not the right stuff

We would and should thank the powers that be, who let this young man get a free ride on an airliner without paying, mind you, regardless of the seating arrangements that he endured with little comfort during his flight.

By not holding this person accountable, officials have opened the door to future such incidents and brings a whole new meaning to the saying fly me by the seat of my pants and dare anyone to do anything about it, regardless of any possible excuse besides stupidity.

Now the teen might try to hold the airline accountable for a rough, drafty flight and no refreshments. I might add that you and I pay when we travel by air. So to all of you who give this kid a free pass, I say happy flying and good job until next time.

    Darn, darn, double Darn. When i saw the letter title, i thought Al was going to do a hit piece.on the fringe right column, "The right stuff" which sucks up space here every monday. I had hoped Al would comment that it wasn't far enough into the twilight zone of tea partyness. But no, it was just his usual stuff. I am surprised he didn't blame Obama, though.

    Poor Mikey. He just can't stand the thought that someone with a political orientation different from his gets to play in what he considers his private play pen. Not content to bombard us with his anti-conservative, rabid anti-Republican propaganda, he wants to dominate even the commentaries. ... Now watch his claque come charging to his rescue!

    “You got to promise me if you're watching me tonight and you ever get to the point in your life where you are so puzzled, confused, and frightened that you feel that the only way out is to abuse or molest a little kid, well then, you have got to kill yourself. You have to lean into the strike zone and take one for the team.” Dennis Miller

  • Well...May 14, 2014 - 9:07 am

    He is right about that statement... But he supports people in power that do exactly that... molest children... Google The Franklin Cover up.... or Bush Clinton MK Ultra... In the darkness child sacrifices are done... molesting children is a porthole to the demonic powers, especially done in a ritual, a bond so strong to the dark side that it totally possesses them, a bond to evil that is not broken. Our Government is not "our" Government, it is not for us, it is to prepare for the arrival of the anti-Christ... The Illuminati control "our" Government.

    So Mike should the boy or his parents pay the airlines for the flight? Or are you just sucking up space here just to see your name in the paper. I am surprised you did not blame Bush for this.

    Earth to dog, this is not a newspaper, it's an online forum. And yes, they should have to pay for a round trip. Coach, of course, not first class.

    If you really do care about your Grandchildren and you are as financially comfortable as you say you are... then... Stock up on food... we should all do this... if you like tomato soup buy 20 cans, I think it keeps for 2 years, if nothing happens you are just "pre-spending" your grocery money... Just in case we should all stock up..

    LOVE tomato soup, always have it in the pantry. Our grand kids are very lucky and we are lucky to have them. We have a stocked pantry, refrigerator and freezer too. I know I'm going to regret this, but what's the point?
