Friend of Unfair Park PeterK sends the following item from The Smoking Gun, along with the note: "Southwest just can't catch a break. As if you need another reason not to use one of those ratty airplane blankets, take a look at what the FBI says one guy was up to Monday on a flight from Philadelphia to Denver."
Long story short: A 34-year-old computer programmer from Delaware was on taking one of the Dallas-based carrier's planes from Philly to Denver Monday when a woman says she spotted him "fumbling underneath a blanket" and "holding his erect penis," along with a napkin. He's been charged with indecent exposure. So far, no response from Kevin Smith.
