Fear And Loathing On A Plane

This story about a three-year-old candidate for Terrorist of the Year and her family's getting booted from an already-overdue flight has fired up a bit of attention...not only from other bloggers, but from news sites all over the place.

"But Julie Kulesza said: 'We weren't giving an opportunity to hold her, console her or anything.'"

Sorry, Mommy. You can't hold her. It's against FAA regulations. She must sit in her own seat. She must wear her own seat belt. And under no circumstance should she be allowed to continue with the noise pollution. The plane is already late in taking off, and you want to delay it even more? What makes you and your little darling so special that you think the rest of the world should accomodate you?

And why would she need consoling? You don't console a child who's throwing a temper tantrum, to the greater inconvenience of the other 112 paying passengers. You pick her up by her scruff, press her firmly into her seat and belt her in. And when someone hands you a gag to stuff into your little darling's mouth in order to shut her up, you use that, too.

Way to go, AirTran Airways!

Suddenly, I feel an urge to book a flight to...anywhere...

But but but...thats child abuse! How dare you suggest a parent be responcible! That is so un-progresive of you. Don't you know that you are supposed to treat little Chimera's with respect and never ever discipline them no matter how bad they are? It might hurt there so fragile ego for the rest of their lives.............

Tim beat me to it. What exactly are you thinking? Discipline??? Society has taught us that discipline is wrong, what children need is to know that they are loved no matter what and can do whatever they please without repercussion......
