i think the most shocking thing of all of this is that there are still good looking women working at hooters.

No, but the airline can make him buy an extra seat! Is THAT discrimination?

Go and argue that one!

How about skin three inches below the belly button?

No they haven't been prohibitied, they have been deemed as inappropriate by certain peoples at that very time. This is my whole point. The instances of people with political shirts being escorted off of being asked to turn inside out was due to political bias. My point is unless it's defined it's up to the certain prejudices of that paticular person, and that's bullshit.

Well if some actually does spill over into another seat then yes, they should have to pay for it. No one else can use that seat.

You can't buy one lot and build a house that spills over onto the next lot.

One of the most disturbing things to me about this is the complete arbitrariness of decisions such as this. I just watched the Today show interview with her and on her return flight a female flight attendent on the very same airline complimented her on the very same outfit. One attendent thought the whole thing was offensive and one thought it was cute.

I still think the first attendent had his shorts in a bunch and was engaging in a power trip. And that shouldn't be the reason someone is kicked off (or even threatened to be kicked off) a flight.

Everyone's belly button height is different. 3 inches is nothing for me...

That's not the point. Cases regarding onerous clauses are not argued based on the legal construction of the clause. They're argued based on whether the person/employee at the point of sale informed the customer of the clause, whether there were clearly posted signs, whether the customer was aware of the policy prior to contract formation due to custom and so on.

Yeah, they're made of some kind of paper towel material. It's usually us North Americans who walk all around Europe in shorts and get weird looks. I made sure I had a decent looking skirt the day I went to the Vatican for this reason as well. They will also sell these paper shawls to women in tank tops. Although I remember in Venice, they were giving them out for free at St. Mark's.

I can't help but laugh at that type of thing. I would think God wouldn't have a problem with a little skin. Isn't he supposed to be the one who designed it (or at least started the design process)?

Personal judgment is used by police officers as well. There's not much consistency in things like traffic violations and warnings for example. I don't see how it makes it any less valid - it's an inherent part of any policing system.

Wow, that's your justification? Personal judgement in policing makes for a horrible cop. Next you'll start supporting racial profiling...
