Flight Attendant Steve Slater a Huge Internet Sensation

I'm so happy Jet Blue flight attendant Steve Slater is getting a enormous tsunami amount of support for his dramatic exit from a bad customer situation on a flight.  Thousands of people are rallying for a defense fund since Slater's facing serious charges which could land him in jail for 7 years. 

Slater got knocked on the head by a piece of luggage pretty bad to cause a lump on his forehead.  I think that fact alone will cause the charges to be dismissed.  He probably suffered a small concussion. 

There will probably be a movie made and Slater could possibly become a millionaire with his own brand of "I'm not going to take this any more and I'm as mad as hell" from the movie 1970's classic Network.

We've all had this kind of frustration from our jobs. The strange thing about this Network clip is obviously everything Howard Beale is saying has been going on a very long time.

And. .

This video was featured on CNN news, and is a very cute song sung by a young woman honoring the hero of the working class.
