Whew, Varifrank gives us both barrels in his discussion of proportional response
And Varifrank also pimpslaps whiny people who want everything their way. He and others almost got on an airplane that quite certainly would've crashed, and all the passengers did was complain. I can't help but draw the parallel between these airline passengers and the sniveling jerks who are being rushed out of Lebanon. As one news commenter said this morning, there's been a travel advisory to the region for 20 years and yet people who chose to go there anyway won't stop complaining that the government took a few hours longer than Sweden to ferry them out for free. I think all passengers on that stupid cruise ship should be forced to sit through a reading of Whittle's Responsibility. And they should have to pay that 150 bucks too. Is there some way we can transport all those unused trailers from Katrina to Larnaca?

After a flight was cancelled, passengers were standing in a long line to get rebooked on another flight. A man pushed his way to the head of the line and said to the agent, "I HAVE to get on this flight."
"Sir," she replied. "You'll have to wait with all the other passengers."
"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" he yelled.
Without missing a beat, she picked up the microphone. "Attention all passengers. We have a man at the counter who DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help identify him, please come up to the counter."
"**** YOU!" he yelled over his shoulder as he stomped off.
"Sir," she said. "You'll have to wait in line for that, too."

Thanks David, that's an oldie but a goodie.
Hey, I read that "unused trailer" link. Very interesting. I thought it was going to be more bashing of the hurricaine/flood victims - something about them being too lazy or criminals or whatever. (sound familiar?)
I was surprised to read it was actually about the incompetence of the (Bush) government and its appointees in saving an American city from drowning. This, too, sounds familiar. Unfortunately.

Will -- I find it very interesting that you see no problem commenting on my blog post, yet you don't even bother to read it until six hours later...

I'm like magic that way.
