It's been awhile. I didn't feel quite right about making fun of airlines during the past few months, what with all the trauma suffered. But I'm back, because I just read about the most horrendous event ever, perpatrated by United airlines
. A 22-year old kid carrying a novel (Hayduke Lives! by Edward Abbey) with a cover illustration of a man holding dynamite
, was prevented from boarding two United flights, after it was deemed he was a threat. A COVER ILLUSTRATION!!!! he went back home after rescheduling his flight and picked up a copy of Harry Potter, and STILL WAS DENIED BOARDING
. come on people now. get your head out of your ass.
