Senator Wants Chatty Future Air Travelers to Get Off His Lawn
Posted at 3:04 p.m. on Nov. 26, 2013
Bad news potentially promiscuous air travelers: Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., doesn’t want to know about your “last night’s love life.”
“Imagine two million passengers, hurtling through space, trapped in 17-inch-wide seats, yapping their innermost thoughts,” the senator said. “The Transportation Security Administration would have to hire three times as many air marshals to deal with the fistfights.”
“Stop and think about what we hear now in airport lobbies from those who wander around shouting personal details into a microphone: babbling about last night’s love life, bathroom plans, next week’s schedule, orders to an assistant, arguments with spouses. Imagine this noise while you travel, restrained by your seatbelt, unable to escape.”
“The FCC commissioners will earn the gratitude of the two million Americans who fly each day by deciding: text messages, yes; conversations, no.”
HOH doesn’t want to imagine an America ruined by girls loudly chatting in their best Kardashian voices at 18,000 feet. And we’re glad Lamar is fighting on our behalf.
