The TSA, while not a completely round marble, at least no longer permits non riding abuelos, tias, and primos to rush the jetway entrance on arrival.

I watched a guy walk 2 cats on a leash the other day in LGA. I love the airport.

Confusion is bad enough, but the clowns who stop dead in their tracks to text or read crap on their smart phone should be drop kicked!

Watched a "comfort" pitbull stroll through a crowded CLT terminal on a leash. Thing was typical, studded leather collar and ripped like it spent it's time at the gym eating steroid Milk Bones.

The female owner was attired in the typical Gangsta' wear, no further comment than her first name probably started with "La-"


Dog looked like it could snap a femur with one sideways bite.

American 1775 tonight on Washington center... Good heaven, what a tool with your dumbass landline comment. We wanted to ask you if you were born a pr*ck or went to some kind of school to be that good of one.

That's a free ticket to knock them over. That might make me a tool, but physics is physics. So is the law of gross tonnage. I can't stop the walkway, so the path of least resistance is through the moron standing in the way. Pre-engagement warnings are useless because anyone
clueless enough to stand at the end of a walkway or foot of an escalator generally doesn't have enough brain cells to respond in a timely manner to a yelled warning. I do always remember to say "excuse me" post-contact.
