This is a classic example of a stupid corporate overreaction: Northwest Airlines said on Wednesday that it had pulled hundreds of thousands of copies of the December issue of its in-flight magazine with Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony on the cover because it didn’t want to “appear to condone” Anthony’s actions in Saturday’s fight at Madison Square Garden.
Give me a freaking break. Who cares about Northwest Airlines? No one in their right mind would make any decision about the airline based on who’s on the cover of the horrible free magazine in the seat-back pocket.
This is just dumb. Better yet, small-minded – unless you consider the publicity the move has generated is good. Not me. Right now, I’m scared to fly an airline run by these knuckleheads.
