RANDOM THOUGHTS: AIRLINE SEATS

airline seat.The phrase "Take a seat" has taken on a whole new meaning to the flying public. The last flight I took, the flight attendant announced, "Not only can your seat cushion be used as a flotation device, the whole seat row is portable and can be used as a flotation couch."

RANDOM THOUGHTS: BLIND MEN, ELEPHANT
