"A JetBlue flight attendant apparently upset with an uncooperative passenger on a just-landed flight unleashed a profanity-laden tirade on the public-address system, pulled the emergency-exit chute, slid off the plane and fled Kennedy International Airport, a law enforcement official said." What did he actually say? Reports a passenger, "To the passenger who just called me a motherfucker: fuck you. I've been in this business 28 years and I've had it." Flight attendant Steven Slater was soon arrested at his home, but I think even the most airline-phobic among us can sort of look at his great escape and offer a silent cheer.
