Do the servers share tips with BOH? If so, that's pretty good for the industry.

No tips allowed. This is healthcare we're talking.

In the case of one recent Delta Airlines flight, “domestic” meant a turkey. Yes, the same kind of large black bird that is culled in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving can also be granted a seat on your next trip to Florida.

This is all thanks to the Air Carrier Access Act of 1986, which stipulates that airlines cannot discriminate against passengers with disabilities, including those who require service animals when travelling.

The provision also allows for the company of “emotional support animals” that travel free of charge, according to Delta’s guidelines, as long as the passenger provides documentation from a mental health professional demonstrating that the animal is needed “as an accommodation for air travel and/or activity at the passenger’s destination.”

If you need an emotional support animal to function, please just kill yourself.

In many ways it parallels the abortion framework, where abortion was theoretically limited after the first trimester, except where a doctor said it was necessary. But in the small print, any doctor could say it was necessary for any reason and no one could question him.

Don't put the government between a man and his doctor and his turkey!

Emotional support animal my ass. Turkeys are mean animals. And very resilient. My father in law has some great stories about researching turkey guts for microbes and having to kill the turkeys. The farmer handed him a baseball bat. One swing later my father in law was being chased around by a turkey with a broken neck that was still alive and functioning. Apparently the farmer got a good laugh and told him to swing as hard as he could next time.

Why the fuck would anyone use a turkey for emotional support? I get a dog or a cat, or hell, basically any mammal, but a turkey is just shitty.

Unless this was right before Thanksgiving and the dude figured out a way to bring his artisanal heritage free range dinner home for free, in which case, well done, sir. Well done.

By the way, even though the article says that the "emotional support animals" are required by the "Air Carrier Access Act of 1986," I am going to take a stab in the dark and say it's almost certainly not anything Congress passed into law, but from regulations enacted by liberal bureaucrats.

Somebody had a fake-ass emotional support dog at the Art Institute the last time I was there. Had some collar that said "support animal" or something that you can buy on amazon...but not the kind of harness that real service dogs wear.

Honestly, I couldn't believe the museum allowed it. The thing wasn't *badly* behaved, but it certainly didn't behave like any real service dog I have ever seen. Was somewhat surprised a museum filled with multi-million dollar works wouldn't be knowledgeable and willing to make the "emotional support animals are not protected by the ADA" argument.

The couple with the dog looked totally fine. I mean...maybe it could have been something like a seizure response dog, but if you've got your partner with you, do you really need the dog? And the dog just didn't have the focus of a real working dog...

According to google the "emotional support animals" regulation requiring that they be allowed onto planes came into being in 2003. Surprise!

Anyway, it's not much of an argument when bureaucrats have enacted regulations requiring them to be allowed and the law encourages people to sue for every infraction.
