    What you really need to be afraid of when you get in an airplane (Female Pilot or 'Traffic Control?)

    By Willie Shields
    "I have a friend who is fearful of commercial airlines.
    At the gate, before boarding, he asks the agent the following question: "What is the captain's name?" If the answer indicates the pilot is female, he will not board that flight. Any criticism of my friend's lack of confidence in any qualified aviatrix is answered along these lines: "She can't drive a stick shift. I should trust her with a Jumbo Jet?"
    My friend is right to be cautious about flying, but for different reasons. Like most air travelers, he doesn't know what he doesn't know . . ."

    For some reason, when I copy/paste the link provided, I keep getting a passworded screen. This one works:

    Doesn't matter to me any more as I'm on my own personal Do Not Fly list!

    Meh - not just wahmenz, not just planes.

    There was a pretty bad rail crash a few years ago, somewhere in Europe, where a high-speed train took a curve too fast (faster than the posted speed limit) and derailed. Turns out the driver was an effeminate gay who was in a snit after arguing with his boyfriend over breakfast. Turned out, he switched off the signal & speed warning systems on the train and deliberately drove too fast.
