Trying to swing back into journal writing.  So, let's start with... an opinion game!

Here's a news article that is not related to the White House.  I would like you to read it and share your thoughts.  In my next entry, I will share mine!

Sorry, but my days are not adventurous enough to post daily, so I need to be a bit creative, especially since I spend most of it grading or reading the news.

For those who want the gist of the article:


 2 teenaged girls were barred from boarding a United Airlines flight due to their leggings. The girls were using a United Travel Pass, a perk given to employees. According to United, leggings do not meet the dress code policy for employees and Travel Pass users.

For more details, read the article (click on link below). Thoughts?

The girls were flying on employee passes and when you are issued the pass, the dress code is very clearly spelled out. They were traveling as representatives of the company on the pass...so if you're flying on a non-rev ticket, you abide by those rules. So while we could talk about the way in which United handled its response or the inherently archaic sexist existence of a dress code associated with the passes - the parents were very clearly informed of the rules if they wanted the non-rev tickets and chose to ignore them. From what I understand from my flight attendant friend, if you ever fly non-rev, you KNOW what those rules for the dress code are.
