This might actually be the most borin' minutiae?

While I read James often and rarely find very little that I am in disagreement with enough to blog about, but then I read somethin' like this:

While I'm sufficiently old school to think people traveling on airplanes should dress presentably . . .
and I am tryin' to remember where in school I read that you were supposed to dress presentably while flyin' on a plane. Yeah, I know what James had to say was a good read and I didn't really disagree with the conclusions he reached. I guess I just thought it funny that someone seemingly proposed that there is a dress code for flyin'. Of course, I am an idiot, so make of this post what ya will. ;)

Well, if you don't dress right, the stewardesses will make fun of you on the Internet, I can tell you that!

Wow, but do some people take flyin' a lot more seriously than I do, but then most of my flyin' has either been done on military cargo planes or on commercial carog planes. I mean, find a comfortable spot on a box and enjoy the trip. If ya get really lcuky, you can find enough loose space on a cargo net to lay on. It is just like bein' able to sleep in ahammock. Yes, now that is 1st Class travel.

I've travelled first class a few times (I got bumped) and economy a number of times. From your description, I think I should find a military cargo plane to fly on henceforth.
