    Damn, now I have to kill you.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I remember this pretty little Canadian back in '79 on my trip through Europe. Shoulda kept up with her.

    I hate plaintiff's attorneys as much as anyone else, but I don't think this is that big of a deal. It doesn't sound like anyone is seeking (or could possibly win) punitive damages, so the only thing that people are asking for is compensatory damages.

    If someone lost their laptop/bberry/luggage/business papers, broke their nose, spent the night in the hospital, etc., then I see no reason why they shouldn't be compensated for those things.

    Is it US Air's fault? No, but they have insurance to cover this exact thing for a reason.

    I think that anyone that was on that flight, crying 5k ain't enough for them... should be forced to say... watch unedited video of a few airliner crashes. Ya know the ones that have the bodies all burnt, shreaded and bloodied.

    And then slapped, repeatedly with a fish. A dead smelly fish.
    I think it's more than enough, and if I were one of the passengers, I'd give at least 80% to the pilot as a small Thank You. The 20% I'd keep would be to cover the damaged luggage.

    I'm not so sure it was Kanuckistani Geese. Though these look like Hongcouver Taxi drivers...

    More than enough to cover the ticket, and lost luggage.

    5000 wouldn't even cover the cost of the suits I take with me on vacation.

    Do you insure your luggage?

    Meh, in todays TSA world, I usually ship my luggage to my destination.


    But yeah. I'd be SOL to on what I carry if My Amex did not provide me with insurance.
