    Coming soon -- "Kid Friendly Zones" on airplanes if these legislators have their way:

    Another P C idea or long overdue?

    Personally, I have yet to be on a plane long enough to have them show a movie, but this just smacks of government interference from the P C crowd.

    I love that this whole movement was started over "King Kong." Fucking Puritanical nonsense.

    Wow...our tax dollars at waste....fucking ridiculous.

    How about adult-friendly zones on the plane protected from loud, obnoxious kids by sound-proof walls?

    And I say that knowing my 4-year-old has on occasion been that loud, obnoxious kid.

    I don't know. Fay Wray almost exposes a nipple.

    Doc....Refresh my memory: Started over "King Kong"? I do not remember *what* started it, only that it needs to end -- NOW!!!....but probably won't, of course.

    Jesse Kalisher, a 45-year-old photographer from Chapel Hill, also has lobbied airlines to self-regulate movie content and created a Web site, http://www.kidsafefilms.com .

    Kalisher said he got involved after "King Kong" was shown on a flight, though his own two youngsters were sleeping at the time.

    "Parents were trying to protect their children from seeing images that were really gruesome," he said. "The whole thing is completely inappropriate for kids."

    I guess it didn't start it. Oh well. I stand by my previous statement.

    Kalisher may not have started it, but the rest of us with common sense ought to see it stops. My God!

    I'm not a prude but the woman does have a point.

    However,we would probably never agree on what's "appropriate"

    I'm not saying entire planes, though that's not a bad idea. But if you can force the airlines into the expense of kid-friendly zones, then at least be fair and create save havens from loud, whiny children. And don't blame the damn parents. Try controlling a 4-year-old for any length of time. And if you can pull it off...please share your methods, dammit!

    I can confidently state that Katie Kelley is completely full of shit. I have never been on a flight where nudity has been on the screen. R-rated movies are always toned down to reduce the language. Why wouldn’t they tone down the nudity?

    Movies on planes suck hard enough. I do NOT need more people to ruin it.

    I'll have to make sure my laptop is loaded up with enough porn.

    Have all your Kid Friendly Zones that you want ... somebody start a fucking Adults Only airline. Now. No babies. No kids. Nobody under the age of 18 for that matter. Fuck 'em all. I want some peace and quiet when I'm cramped in public transit with wings for six or seven hours.

    Keeping kids the hell out of first class would be a start.

    Make the parents choose.
