A Quick Study

"Help, help, my feelings are hurt," that is what I'm supposed to say, right?

In retribution for this action, the unnamed couple probably will be dragged into court soon and face the prospect of hiring a lawyer, enduring hostile questioning and paying huge legal bills. The same fate could await other as-yet-unnamed passengers on the US Airways flight who came forward as witnesses. The imams' attempt to bully ordinary passengers marks an alarming new front in the war on airline security.

Average folks, "John Does" like you and me, initially observed and reported the imams' suspicious behavior on Nov. 20. Such people are our "first responders" against terrorism. But the imams' suit may frighten such individuals into silence, as they seek to avoid the nightmare of being labeled bigots and named as defendants.

Sure they sue the Deep Pockets. That doesn't mean you and I won't also make the list.
