And no one's getting fat except Mama Cass
The Canadian Supreme Court ruled last week that obese people have the right to two seats for the price of one seat on Canadian flights. The Canadian Transportation Agency had decided earlier that people "functionally disabled by obesity" (insert eye roll here) deserved to sit in two seats for the price of one seat. Several Canadian airlines had appealed that decision to the Supreme Court which then declined to hear their appeal. I can't believe I'm siding with the evil airlines on anything, but this is just ridiculous. I think obese people have the right to two seats, but they need to be paying for that second seat. Why can't tall people with long legs have the right to two seats for the price of one for more leg room? Why can't people who need to spread out for work have the right to two tray tables for the price of one? Why can't people who enjoy a freak free zone have the right to two seats for the price of one for more room from freaks? (Sign me up for that one.) Where does it end?
