Deal With It

http://www.cnn.com/2009/TRAVEL/02/16/airline.peanuts/index.html

When I first saw the name of the above article I thought "oh jesus tap-dancing christ get over the salmonella bullshit" until I started actually reading the article. Then I thought "oh jesus tap-dancing christ if you're allergic to peanuts don't fucking eat them."

I understand that some people have the severe allergy in that so much as smelling a peanut can trigger a reaction. To this I say let the buffer zone idea play out. Chances are, the odor of peanuts will be lost amongst the odors of other passengers.

But seriously, protests? Give me a break. Peanuts are the traditional, if not stereotypical, airline snack. Don't go "oh well just serve pretzels" because chances are most people will want peanuts. Also, last time I checked, having a peanut allergy that bad (as in, smelling peanuts can screw you up) is very rare. Why should an airline throw away something most people eat just because a tiny handful of customers can't? It's not as though the airline is throwing peanuts at you and yelling "EAT THEM OR I EAT YOUR CHILDREN."

Seriously though, what the hell.

yea...why suddenly would people be protesting, just seems like they're taking advantage of a crises for their own interests. Under any previous circumstances peanut protesters would be laughed at (they still are)...but now are almost being taken seriously.

RIDICULOUS

The saddest part is, 20 years ago any protest of this kind would be laughed at. Now though, not protesting when something pisses you off is nearing abnormality. What the hell happened to this country.
