Re: Britains First Sharia Airline

Hopefully their AOC is denied. No, listen. We have to be tolerant of other beliefs and ways of living, as long as they do the same with us. And most Muslims do that. I lived in Iran for two years and I am going to tell you straight out that the Iranians are the kindest, most hospitable people on ea...

Re: Delta to cut Seattle-Hong Kong, announces Seattle-Osaka

What, Delta is cutting a route from SEA? But their local radio commercials say they are doubling down on Seattle as the [scientifically proven] center of the universe!
