I really don't care. There are more important issues to discuss and focus on.

It would appear that the world is heading towards flooding water levels and global warming.

UPDATE -STORY IS A FAKE

The Whole story is a Fake -its a Prank played on by a prank website called Associated Content.

But don't feel bad, guess which "Fair and Balanced News" Network didn't bother to double check its source and reported this story as news.

I for one am still quite skeptical about global warming; however, lets stay on topic! My father is a scientist at Los Alamos labs, the labs that created the Nuclear Bomb. They do a lot of research on global warming, and they have yet to find conclusive evidence to prove its legitimacy. In fact, theyve found evidence that the changes in climate and the melting of the polar ice caps can be attributed to other things such as the rise in the number of animals who live under the sea, and the increase in solar rays and flares sent to earth by an ever aging sun.

SORRY TO GET OFF TOPIC

UPDATE THE STORY ISNT ALL FAKE

THE TRUE STORY

http://www.boston.com/news/local/mai...ent_at_school/

APPRENTLY IT ISNT ALL FAKE
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eat-th...s_e_46824.html

Let's note how certain political demographics jump to certain decisions so quickly.

The problem is it was a "Ham Steak" and not a "Ham Sandwich" and it was still under investigation.

But I suppose the news media in Maine would be making this up as well

To bad people don't take the time to actual research, that took me a whopping 10 minutes....

I admit my post was wrong, but it wasn't laziness, was simply assuming that 2 exact same stories one stating 'ham sandwich' and the other 'ham steak' were the same story. Especially when the fake story used a very real source as its material. I seriously doubt I was alone in being tricked.

The real guilty party is the author of the parody for misleading (in a pathetic way) his reader. Parody are supposed to be funny because it's supposed to be obvious, but copying word for word a real story and then changing sandwich to a synonym isn't funny. It amazes me how the author could have thought that would be funny. Its just lame.



Still, I admit its a good catch, and I regret my error.

I hope the AC gets what is coming to them, to mislead readers like they did is very wrong.

However it is interesting to see how fast that spread....

I will say the information about the foot-washing basins are true. Here in Kansas City in the downtown airport they are putting them in. So that muslims can prepare for daily Islamic prayer. My sister works at the smaller branch off of the main airport and she said they are talking about having them at her area too. Why are we catering to their rituals? If they want to live here I don't have a problem with that but when they are demanding rights for their religion...come on!
What I'm saying is America is a free country but it's America not any other country. We shouldn't have to put in washing basins for them and we shouldn't have to speak spanish.

Whatever happened to freedom of religion? So I now have to be influenced (in one form or another) by another religion? I never knew they had a foot washing ceremony for their daily prayers. I never wanted to know. So now I have to know this and I am offended by it. Heck, if anyone is offended by seeing pork near them (however it got there) then I am offended by having to learn even the least little bit about their religion.

And so the arguments could go in that vein of thought. It all depends on what your views are and what stance you want to take.

I got to agree with Peddler on this one. We had a similar situation at JFK in NYC.

Its a friggin airport. If people want to prey go to the Mosque, Church, whatever. But the Airport is for travelers. If your job cannot accommodate your 5 prayers a day then change your job. This is not Saudi Arabia.

What will be next? Will they have to build an alter at the Terminal equipped with a 24H Priest and confessional in case some traveller has the need for a quick baptism or to confess his latest sins.
