Shut Up and Get Me a Cranapple Juice

Sometimes flight attendants can save lives, as was the case last week on US Airways Flight 1549, ditched in the Hudson River.

And most flight attendants do their jobs very well, despite the hammering they have received on salary and work conditions over the years from airline managements.

But too often, an overly entitled flight attendant, self-appointed as a junior G-lady or G-man, can grossly abuse their authority, as in this shocking case and others in which passengers who run afoul of a martinet in uniform can be labeled as terrorists. This sort of thing happens more often than we think.
