Nice going United.  Idiots.

There are many reasons I will never fly United unless there is no other option.  This is just one more.

Hmmm.  Remember the days when airlines were courteous and caring?  They actually gave a hoot?  Yeah, that didn't last long did it.

Every time I fly is a new exercise in frustration and inconvenience, and it looks like I'm not alone in that experience.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

There's a solution:
Don't fly.

I haven't big on a big jet since 1984.

I have no intention of boarding one again.

TSA can't make me!

Except for Pearl Harbor for the WWII vets, what's the big cheese about Hawaii?  Melanesians?  Waves?  Poi?
I say blockade the bastards until they starve and break the longshoremen's unions and then force them to eat their own droppings.

Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

My stepson retired as a detective for the sheriff's office, and moved to Hawaii. He's only 46 years old. He golfs and gives lie detector tests for extra money. He has been going there for the past 20 years, and decided to live there. He loves it.
