United plane diverted when parents complain about inappropriate in-flight movie — Wow. Just wow. (Via [info]danjite.)

Transatlantic flights 'to get more turbulent'Flights across the North Atlantic could get a lot bumpier in the future if the climate changes as scientists expect.

Which explains a lot about Republican polices on miseducating America's children. A fear-based political movement requires isolation and willful ignorance to survive and prosper.

AotD: No, alas, even though I'll be in the same state at the same time. I'll be in Tyler instead. Texas is just too darned big.
