"Farce" - and links by socks

"To be linked is a swift and often terrible thing. Links can hit you out of the blue, just like that. And once linked, it's forever."

Mike Carlton's rather droll and dry-humoured column in the SMH today would be be funny if it weren't so serious. Having already seen the Government's actions in the Jack Thomas "affair" described as "farce" by a Federal Magistrate this past week, it doesn't take Carlton long to show how "links" can turn into potentially dangerous things.

Truly irresponsible "journalism" and editorialising by and from a broadsheet that claims to be a serious newspaper.

United overbooked a flight and, having only realized this after the flight had boarded, tried to force a few randomly selected passengers off. One man refused to vacate the seat he paid for and, thus, had a reasonable expectation of sitting in. Security office…
