What, No Video?


I know I've ventured off that slippery slope of posting videos. How much is too much? Like Professor Owl once wisely said, "the world may never know". But trust me if there was ever a video I'd post in a heartbeat, it's the one of Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater having the mother of all meltdowns.

It seems our Steven got into an arguement with a passenger over unloading baggage from the overhead bin before the Embraer 190 reached the gate. In the process he was "accidentally" struck in the head with the luggage and demanded an apology from the passenger. After the passenger refused to apologize and cursed him, Slater marched away, grabbed the PA and gave the old "F me? No, F you pal! Buh-Bye!" retort. He then grabbed a couple frosty cold beers from the beverage cart and pulled the emergency exit.

Unconfirmed reports say he did a flawless Triple Lindy down the inflatable slide followed by a quadruple toe loop and stuck the landing on the passing AirTrain. He then stripped off his company issued tie and threw it in the air reminiscent of Mary Tyler Moore.

He was later arrested in his Queens home charged with criminal trespass, criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.

When asked where he was being taken, police said jail. "It's a big grey building with bars, barbed wire and lot's of lonely, sweaty men."

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and venture that Mr. Slater probably has other similarities to "Johnny" from Airplane beyond sharing the same first name as the actor who portrayed him.

He may enjoy jail.

Changing the subject, was coming home from parts west today, stopped for gas at the Bowie W-M. Instead of getting back on "the big highway", I went due east on the smaller one that parallels it, and very soon saw a road sign, wondered if it was named for your kin-folks?

That's the old 287/101. Haven't been down it in a while so I'm not sure which sign you're talking about. But you were real close. I'm a few miles south of Sunset.
