Re: Flight attendant "fired" for Marriage Proposal

Stupid reason to get fired, but it's China. As for public proposals, I think they're dumb. I don't think a private moment between two people should be done in front of anyone.

Re: Delta joins United, JetBlue in raising bag fees

Stop paying for those airlines, then. If you don't like it, drive, take the train, or fly Southwest. That is not an option in many cities. There are only one or 2 airlines. What are you talking about?! Name any of the top 100 U.S. airports by BTS passenger count that has only one or two airlines. T...

Yes, but if a law violates another law I'm sure parts of the new law can probably be invalidated somehow. It will be challenged in court for sure. That's what "repeal" is for. A new law could be passed that repeals a portion of the Deregulation Act of 78 while keeping everything else inta...
