SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Northwest Airlines canceled a flight set to leave from Las Vegas to Detroit after the captain cursed on a cell phone in a bathroom, then swore at one of the 180 passengers on the plane, officials said on Saturday.I'm sure the other passengers were thrilled that Captain Morality had to confront the pilot and get the flight canceled. I bet no one had anywhere to be.

When the captain emerged from the bathroom, a passenger confronted him about his behavior, reportedly prompting more cursing by the pilot of the B757 aircraft.
People get so upset about vulgarity. Millions of children can go hungry here and abroad and no one bats an eyelid, but someone says "fuck" and it's a big incident. Well, my advice is to ignore the children and the curse words, and the world will be a better place, or at least a place where we can fly over the starving children.
