Why this current spate of crazy airline stories? I know from experience that airline travel is pretty crazy, but currently it’s been an avalanche of stories.
Note this: It doesn’t seem to matter what certain protected businesses do, they know they can count on a bailout. For example: General Motors (GM). Like Ford, it produced millions upon millions of trash cars. It was willful in its disdain for the consumer. But it skated clear, dumped a bunch of obligations, and poked its ugly head up again, thanks to government. It is legally a different company, but with mostly the same old idiots at the helm, so what’s changed?
It’s nothing new for my opinion to be in the minority — a minority of one, for the most part, ha-ha. For example, I can’t understand why they don’t just lower the hoops in basketball and use average-height players, instead of scouring the planet for those 7-foot-tall giants.
Now imagine this: The case where an old building in the city collapses to the ground. It spills out over the street, blocking traffic and burying some cars in the wreckage. That whole part of town is a dysfunctional disaster area, but no one is allowed to clean it up. Anyone who tries is paraded around the town to be booed, and have rotten tomatoes thrown at him by the jeering masses.
