Early here on California’s north coast — 4:15 a.m. to be exact — and with Yerba Mate cursing through the veins, the world looks cleaner and nicer without all the pompous sound from a shitload of awake peoples.
Sound and sight is more clear this time of day, as if the misery and wretchedness was faraway and long ago.
Not! A bitch fit does work, sometimes.
A push and a shove with the words of the morning (and day): Steve Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant who melted down Monday after a fight with a passenger, has turned into a kind of freakish folk hero: By early Tuesday afternoon, more than 20,000 people had declared themselves supporters of Slater on Facebook, and the number was growing by thousands every hour. At least one fan set up a legal fund on his behalf.
And a friend told a giant gaggle of reporters and photogs after the press became too great: “Leave, leave leave.”
Yes and good morning.
