Aviatordream" the "pilot" would wish to send his most diesgruntled pax off onto my bus. If you think it is tough to fly at 26,000 ft with five miles of separation, try doing it on the I-95 with 40,000 motorists of marginal skill next door at at 3 feet of separation (and in lousy wx). Incidentally, please do note that there is no part of the airport known as the "tarmac." Those areas are properly the "apron" or the "ramp." "Tarmac" is an abbreviation for
"tarmacadam," a road-building material aggregate developed in Scotland way back when. Illiterate newspapermen trying to demonstrate how erudite they are consistently try to show off by sprinkling "tarmac" into their paper articles. Awful. Let's not copy the dummies and deteriorate the language

Jul 7th 2008 2:48PM I agree...ban the morons. I firmly believe a person should pass some type of mental/psychological/humane series of tests before they can own a pet or have a child. Backyard breeders should also be banned while we are on the 'banning" subject. Anything for a buck for some people and they look at their animal as a meal ticket. With over 14,000 dogs and cats put down last year in my county alone...it needs to stop. But, banning the morons would solve a myriad of problems in my opinion--too many unwanted/uncared for animals, no more abused animals, and a better world we could all live in are just a few reasons.

This guy was an jerk...and I guarantee you he shouldn't be allowed to drive his car while talking on the phone if his public display on the play is any indication of his persona.
Don't like the rules, pal...take the bus.
