Empathy? Really?

Yeah, flight attendants have SUCH a tough job.  The stress of showing people how to work a seat belt must be simply unbearable.

This article is so emblematic of the compulsion  mainstream media feels to offer  some kind of justification for the most abhorrent and aberrant conduct.

P.S.  Doesn't this picture remind you of Dick Black's facebook profile pic?


  1. I fear many journalists cannot distinquish between empathizing with and approving of bad behavior. That said, you undermined your own case. What was the point in taking a gratuitous shot at Dick Black?

  2. Tom,

    You're right. I should not approve of Dick Black's bad behavior. My bad.

  3. I just looked at Dick's picture again, compared it to this one == and laughed out loud.
