For those of you who were aghast at the elephant story, this one trumps that by a country mile. In a news story about parental concern over airlines showing R-rated movies, Eric Kleiman of Continential Airlines defended the airlines by saying, “Parents have to be responsible for the actions of their kids — whether they shouldn’t look at the screen or look away.”
For the sake of clarification: he thinks that parents should be responsible for distracting their kids and forcing them to not look at the screen directly in front of them for 2 or more hours. Those of you who have children can no doubt attest to whether or not this will work, so fire away. Am I missing something or is this guy a clown who doesn’t know what he is talking about?
