Direct Action

Cow admits she was impressed with the Chinese airplane passengers who refused to leave the plane when their flight was cancelled.

Topiary thinks that the possibilities and promise of Direct Action have been frightened out of Americans, except for a few environmental warriors.

And Cow thinks that's too bad.

Watercolor agrees with Cow.

Even reserved English folk have had a go at this lark.

Mind you, European airports don't have the capacity for official panic and over-reaction that U.S. airports manage. I recall that an electric storm took out half of St. Louis one time, including the airport. The authorities handled it with all the calm aplomb and customer care of a porcupine with eczema.

Thank you Watercolor.

Kevin, that was an interesting article.

Although statistically your chances of a fatal crash are still higher in automobiles than in air travel, with air travel becoming more and more restrictive, crowded and generally horrible Cow wonders how long people will still fly if they could drive.
