""Mr. Simmons took exception to it and walked over to the other passenger and apparently slapped him in the face."

You Go Girl!

Thanks for posting many great articles.

Respectfully request fewer abbreviations in links. For example, not everyone knows that FOX means Fox News, or that NRO means National Review Online. I think it is better to spell them out.

I heard on the radio that the guy Simmons slapped was 6'5" and weighed 250 pounds.

Richard is a fruitcake, but he does have balls.

You're welcome.

I usually just copy/paste. You're asking me to type.......
I'll take it under advisement.

What exactly was so wrong with what the guy said? Simmons is totally inappropriate to slap someone. He needs to grow up.

The passenger, whose identity wasn't immediately available, wasn't injured but told police that he intended to file charges against Simmons, 55.

I'm sorry...but that's just sad. Who's the bigger sissy here, really?
