    I think the flap is that the current price of an economy ticket is likely to become the new "basic economy" price, and then they'll be free to charge more for the regular economy fare class. So you'll be paying the same, for even fewer amenities. This change was coming regardless, and I'm sure American will be following suit very soon. The airlines shouldn't be trying to spin it as anything less than a fare increase / more nickel-and-dime-ing.

    Delta has had "basic economy" as a fare class for about year now, and while you can still use the bins, good luck finding any space when you board in Zone 3. So it's pretty much a de-facto prohibition.

    By the way, can we talk about how useless fancy corkscrews are? They’re hideously expensive and take up way too much room. More important, anyone who relies on some stupid electric corkscrew is not a REAL MAN. A real man uses a rusty Swiss Army Knife and opens that bottle of Sauvignon Blanc using nothing more than pure grit and steel biceps. Then the cork crumbles halfway through the pull, and you get angry and smash the bottle on the counter in a fit of rage, and then everyone knows that you are NOT a man to be ****ed with. That’s the right way to open wine. So take your rabbit and suck your butt with it.

    I just use a screw and a hammer to uncork my beer. *shrug*

    (I actually do use a Swiss Army type corkscrew for some of my corked beers)
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I knew this article would be slanted gold when it started with this:

    Muslims act like they are superior to non-Muslims because they claim their moral code is much higher.
    Gee, that reminds me of another major world religion. Can't think of the name of it though.

    Note: dunno if he actually said this, but that doesn't matter. It's the quote itself that matters to me:

    The writer might want to spend some time in the Middle East before commenting on Muslims. Nothing could be further from the truth for the vast majority if its practitioners, but it's par for the course for knuckle-draggers.

    But seriously, when it comes to holier-than-thou Christians, I was thinking more along the lines of the average evangelical Protestant. I can't think of any Catholics under the age of 65 that I know who publicly espouse that attitude.

    On second thought, I do know one, but I haven't seen or spoken to her in years. She ended up marrying her boyfriend shortly after they graduated from MTU, and she definitely wore the pants in that relationship.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.
