When I was heavier I often drove home from Colorado to Massachusetts. The idea of cramming myself onto a plane was something I couldn't stomach. Pun intended. I have been following the ruling in Canada that will give obese passengers an extra seat for free. I applaud them for this. But the backlash and the fear it could happened here is already apparent (via my google alerts) and I think that is a shame. I understand that airline travel sucks as it is, but to further harass fat people about seats on planes. Please... we aren't talking about this on busses or trains are we? Yeah, didn't think so.
