Who would you rather sit next to on a flight — a football player wearing sagging pants or a man wearing skimpy women’s underwear? Apparently, U.S. Airways thinks the former is worse.
I came across this headline — “Airline let man fly in women’s undies” — during my morning perusal of the local paper. It’s in the vein of a “man bites dog” story (link here, but the photo is stomach-churning):
Jill Tarlow, a passenger on a June 9 flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Phoenix, took a photo of the scantily clad man wearing a blue women’s bathing suit and high heels.
The man flew six days before University of New Mexico football player DeShon Marman was arrested on a U.S. Airways flight at San Francisco airport following allegations he refused to pull up his pants.
Ms. Tarlow said that she and other passengers complained before boarding the plane, but U.S. Airways employees did not stop the unidentified man from flying.
‘No one would believe me if I didn’t take his picture,’ the 40-year-old woman from Phoenix said. ‘It was unbelievable.’
U.S. Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder defended the airline’s decision to let the man fly, saying employees acted correctly.
‘We don’t have a dress code policy,’ she said.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
