Southwest Airlines recently announced plans to strictly enforce a policy that asks passengers too large for its seats to purchase an extra fare. What do you think?
"Making the obese pay more is fine, but waving them into their seats with fluorescent-orange batons is too much."
Chris George • Systems Analyst
"As a man who once lost 100 pounds, I say to hell with them—it's their fault they're fat. As a man who gained the 100 pounds back, I say have a heart, Southwest Airlines."
Robert Russell • Cashier
"That explains the 'Test Your Ass Dimensions' frame at the check-in counter."

"I hope this controversy escalates. I would love to see that picket line."
Fred Issel • Delivery Driver
"Perhaps the overweight passenger could help offset the price of the extra seat by, say, serving as a screen for the in-flight movie."
Phil Lyman • Stockbroker
"Overweight people fully deserve the dignity they have denied themselves for so long."
