The Cretins Cloning and Feeding
Question: If we can legislate morality; if we can legislate economic activity; if we can legislate 'til we're blue in the face every gosh darn, ding dang thing that springs up as a result of human existence and interaction then why, oh why, can we not have an I.Q. requirement for flying on an airplane?
Did y'all see this on the news this morning?
Grandmother Paralyzed By Turbulence
I may not know much about the physics of air flight, but I do know this: When even the flight attendants aren't up and about serving their warm soda and stale peanuts, you for damn sure better keep your happy ass glued and buckled in your seat until the captain gives you the okey dokey. Capisci?
What an idiot. Sometimes, stupid is just stupid, an accident is just an accident, and incidents are beyond our ability to control, legislate, or adjudicate.
And, finally, why "grandmother"? Why not "Woman Paralyzed by Turbulence"? Does being a grandmother give this lady any special status in the eyes of the law? Does she deserve some extra special sympathy just because she's managed to pass along her genetics? Even though, by all accounts, she seems to have done so pretty incompetently?
Talk about media "bias."
And this is only Monday, Party People.
