    We need a media/press quality to match or at least come close that of our hero.
    He must be given a bravery medal , of the highest order.

    And it matters not one iota whether he is modest or immodest.. He still performed as a man should.

    Aw, thanks, I wasn't aware of that. I apparently missed that bit.
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation.

    In these times there is a wonder that the passengers don't become like sharks in a freeding frenzy. Up 30,000 feet up in the air there is no playing around. I hate heights and even worst I hate falling from heights.

    Am sorry if this guy has any mental problems but in a situation like that I am going to hurt him seriously.
    Three cheers for the Flying Dutchman! However if I heard correctly on one news report he climbed over three seats? Sitting in a plane on the way home I just don't see how that's possible with only about 20 inches of clearance above the seats and people in the seats. It must have been a little different than that.

    A little cynical aren't we?

    And don't forget it's Obama's fault. What ridiculous tripe.

    I don't think air passengers will sit by idle anymore after 9/11. It's about time we stood up to these vermin and squash them like a roach.
    .
    From what we know they didn't sit idly by on 911. Seems you forget the airliner that went down in PA. Does "Let's roll" ring a bell? Please don't forget those brave souls.

    BTW at an airline terminal the sound of an alarm going off at the baggage check gets the same result as, "when E.F. Hutton speaks everybody listens." (at least the first three times) I can tell you from personal experience. I also got some scrutiny from a passenger when I pulled my t-shirt out of my pants to clean my glasses. Man I thought that guy's eyeballs were going to pop out of his head, and I don't look Nigerian.

    Haven't you heard?.... it's Bush's fault.

    In addition, "the Congress also voted on several occasions to actually tighten up the no fly list to make the standards more restrictive. So it is a little tough for members on Congress to now come and complain about the administration," he reasoned.

    Meanwhile, Gerstein explained, the administration is arguing that the safety rules they were following were set up by the Bush administration.

    No surprise here.

    Well of course it's Bush's fault. Why do you think I thought it was so ridiculous to blame Obama?
