Porn Star Stewardesses: What A Wonderful Time To Be Alive!

Ack! I’m wearing reading glasses right now. READING GLASSES! How did this happen?

Don’t know if you’ve heard, but it seems a RyanAir “air hostess” has been outed as a porn star. The best part of this story is the way the airline is sticking behind her (so to speak). Instead of playing the ridiculous anti-freedom moral card and insisting that the hostess’s personal activities have some relevance to her job, their position is “What people do before or after they work for us is their business.”

Hallelujah, brother!

Mind you, their highly ethical stance might be a bit more worthy of celebration if this wasn’t the same company that is considering putting pay toilets in their planes and on making calendars of their employees in bikinis.

For my fellow writer friends, be sure to visit the Google Book Settlement page and to assert your rights over whatever content Google might have digitized without your permission. Now, I’m on record as being a fan of piracy and open access…. and that includes piracy of my written works. But if you’d a chance to get some cash out of a billion dollar corporation that made profit out of your works without your permission, go to it. The Writers Union of Canada advises writers not to opt out of the settlement.
