This is a simplistic anti-Russian piece, exhibiting little to no understanding of the actual situation: e.g., most Russian citizens have a nationalistic sense of pride, Crimea is historically Russian, the elected pro-Russian President of the Ukraine was illegally ousted with American and European complicity. Moreover, it omits to mention European reliance on Russian gas and oil. If Dykewicz has any real understanding of the situation, he does not exhibit in here.

This column is a complete nonsense, start to finish. Why does Townhall publish such rubbish?
It's the NFL and the Media (ESPN in particular) which are disgusting ...and the comments reflect this. Jail for a punch? That's absurd. Losing one's job for a punch? That's nonsense, especially without a trial. For the NFL it's all about PR; for the Media it's all about ratings. That's really disgusting.

SpiritInterface: you simply don't know what you're talking about. Is is NOT his space. The airlines sell reclining seats and the ability to use them. She complained and tried to leave the matter to the flight attendent, but the man refused to comply with the flight attendant's instruction to remove the device, even when told its use was contrary to airline policy. It is neither a privilege nor a right to refuse to comply with a flight attendant's instructions; it is a felony and, on continued refusal, the flight should have been diverted and he should have been removed by the police, with a consequent fine and perhaps jail time.

If you wish me to believe that she committed a Federal Felony you will need to cite the relevant law/ regulation, demonstrating that throwing a cup of water in the face of a fellow passenger is such. However it definitely is a Federal Felony to disobey an instruction from a flight attendant. The man (I will not use the word "gentleman") deliberately refused to obey the flight attendant's instruction to remove the device which the airline's regulations prohibited. When the flight attendant did not proceed to inform the man that his refusal to comply would result the diversion of the aircraft and his removal from the plane by the police, the woman was left with no "rule of law" option. The flight attendant needs to be instructed that the only way to defuse such a situation is to insist on compliance with airline regulations; the woman should receive an apology and compensation. The man should receive a hefty fine and perhaps jail time.

That is simply not so; she paid for a reclining seat, something which involves the space necessary for the seat to recline. This is true of the person in the seat in front of her and the person in the seat behind her. The airline's rules prohibit the person behind preventing the seat in front from reclining. You are simply wrong.

If you fly often and dislike the transportation your company provides, perhaps you need to look for another job.

That's stupid; 'HE' was occupying 'HER' space and when he refused to remove the device when instrcted to do so by the flight attendant, 'HE' should have been given the choice of removing it or being removed from the plane by the police, NOT 'SHE'.

According to airline policy, the tall man was preventing the woman from making use of the space she had paid for. When asked to remove the device by the flight attendant he was obliged to comply. When he refused to comply and the situation escalated, the plane should have diverted and he alone should have been removed by the police, with appropriate charges brought.
