Kevin Smith Too Fat to Fly
Here’s something with political ramifications we can discuss tonight at Manhattan Project (6:30 at Merchants NY East) or tomorrow after my Rand speech at Yale (6pm at Harkness Hall, Room 119): nerd-beloved director Kevin Smith was ousted from a Southwest Airlines flight for being too fat. A side effect of creeping health-nannyism, or exactly the kick in the lard-filled ass America needs? When in doubt, of course, I defer to the owners of the company — but a ticket is a contract. So many questions…so many future jokes at his own expense…

You can listen to Kevin Smith’s side of the story, ad nauseum, on his latest podcast. Southwest’s apology (in both senses of the word) is here.
As much as I dislike commercial airlines, I’m calling “attention whore” in this particular case.
