Fools on a plane

Why are fools still losing their minds on airplanes? Today, 12 people were arrested after acting out on a Northwest jet that had just left Amsterdam. A couple of weeks ago, it was morons planning to blow up to jets headed to the United States from London.

Here's the question here: Do fools still think that, after 9/11, they can still get away with random jet tricks? Perhaps they're trying to exploit a weakness in the system, hoping that, eventually, we will all become comfortable and lazy again, and forget about terrorism?

All I know is this: In this day and age, with people busy and trying to get to where they need to go, most people are not trying to put up with fools on a plane.

I'm impatient. When I travel, I like to get where I'm going. If someone wants to get all terrorist on a flight my black ass is on, they will get a beat down that rivals anything they may have gotten from their parents as a child.

You would think that after 9/11 that people wouldn't even try the nutcase role, but somehow this hasn't stopped them. Even knowing that they won't even hesitate to arrest you and label you a terroist, these fools still wanna show their ass.

Yo, when my old employer sent me and a photographer to NY right after 9/11 he - an older bro' about my dad's age - and I agreed before gettting on the plane that political correctness be damned. Anybody who was brown - browner than white folks but not quite as brown as us and was wearing long, flowing, draping sh!t, and any kind of head wrap had better not get their asses up out of their seats during the flight.

Maybe it would make us look like crazy mofos, but we were fully prepared to even tackle funny actin' old ladies who might have been just walking to the bathroom.

No joke, I told my man Jack, "You hit 'em low, I'll hit 'em high. We can sort it all out later, if we're wrong!"

We never had to tackle anyone on that flight or the return. And we laughed about it after we got back home a week-and-a-half later. But hey, too many people wanna be damned heroes or martyrs or whatever, and I was willing to risk my Kumbaya Club membership to make sure we didn't go out like that.
