11/17/2004 Archived Entry: "I-69 and fired stewardess"
From the "fact stranger than fiction" file: "John Hostettler, the Congressman representing the 8th district of Indiana, has been convinced by local religious groups to introduce legislation in the House that would change the name of an Interstate 69 extension to a more moral sounding number." (BLUSH I've just learned that the afore-referenced site is a satirical one. Oh well, being tremendously gullible must mean that I'm not a cynic, right? Looking hard for a positive spin, here!) In case you are not inclined to take blogging seriously -- it's dangerous work! -- at least one stewardess has been fired for "sexy blogging." Her blog, which used to be named Queen of the Sky, now runs under the title Diary of a Fired Flight Attendant. Apparently, she heard from Delta Airlines "after she posted a set of provocative photos of herself in her Delta uniform. In one photograph, her skirt is hiked to mid-thigh as she perches along a seatback on an empty airliner. In another, she is leaning over the seats, her blouse unbuttoned, exposing part of her bra."
