Don’t read the comments on the Gawker story about the kid with autism (people first language, please) being removed from the United Flight.

People suck. My oldest doesn’t have autism, but he does have some crazy meltdowns, particularly when he’s hungry. It’s good to know how harshly I’m being judged for that. If I were a mad scientist, I would invent an empathy gun that forces people to experience other people’s emotions.
