2 More Pretty Women Nabbed by Southwest; Central Florida Strikes Yet Again!

[Left: The alleged perpetrators]

I really don't know what this is all about. Southwest Airlines says it's reacting to "some news reports," and here is a sample. This is the latest incident involving good-looking young female passengers who have run afoul of Southwest flight attendants (and in this case ended up being questioned by the police and the F.B.I., who evidently have no real threats to focus on.)

Oh, wait a minute. This happened on a flight from Tampa! Central Florida strikes again.

"The story has nothing to do with [the two female passengers'] appearance, but rather, their use of what other Passengers tell us was profanity ..." the Southwest statement intriguingly says, indicating an attitude that cursing is reasonable ground for arrest. I gather that the women in question charged that Southwest flight attendants assailed them for their appearance, which would not be without precedent.

Maybe Southwest has a point, if in fact these two were being unruly and "threatening." On the other hand, the womens' accounts sound pretty plausible to me.

Meanwhile, Jayzus, Southwest PR Department, would you please get someone who isn't wearing vintage lederhosen to proof-read this stuff?

All of those capitalized Common Nouns, in that vaguely Teutonic Manner, are weirding Me out.
