17″ My Ass!

(17″ is the approximate length of the average keyboard.)

Since the spring of last year, I’ve taken 2-flights to Europe.  It was unpleasant about 9-hours each way – I can’t imagine doing it again. And first class costs between 4-and 6-times MORE than a regular fare!

The night before my last flight, United Airlines e-mailed me with a special offer: I could purchase 2-inches more “front” space (not seat space) for only an additional $60 – EACH WAY! (insert choice words here)

I plan to sell my frequent flyer miles on-line.  This may or may not be legal but fuck it – sue me, airlines.  You’ve squeezed my ass enough.

Do you REALLY want to make your flight unpleasant?  Stick ‘Knee Defenders’ in the seat ahead of you so that person cannot lean back and steal your precious space.  I’d think you’re an asshole but you might get worse from other frustrated passengers.  Click here: https://www.google.com/#q=knee+defender

Kicking The Addict

I wasn’t surprised at the reaction many people had to the emergency drug emperin.  An injection of the drug can often save drug addicts who’ve overdosed on heroin.  The small needle container was purchased by some police and fire departments but the outcry against it was exceedingly loud.  “They did it to themselves – they should die,” was a common response.  You know,  just like Jesus would have done (heavy sarcasm font.)  Our war on drugs has been a horrendous failure.  Maybe we should consider a different approach beginning with our attitude.

From Alternet: Cat Nelson* took her first shot of heroin when she was 13 years old. By 17, she was using drugs regularly. By 20, she was in and out of rehab, trying to get clean. Today she is 28. She has legal problems. She has been homeless. She does sex work to support her habit. She has hepatitis C. And she still uses drugs. Read more: www.alternet.org/drugs/kindness-not-punishment
