Term limits, and more

Good week for: Term limits, Everyone in coach, Honesty; Bad week for: Doing your job, Barter, Bipartisanship

Good week for:

Term limits, after former President Bill Clinton admitted that, without them, he would have stayed in the job until he “was carried away in a coffin, or defeated in an election.”

Everyone in coach, after Southwest Airlines flight attendants kicked a California woman and her cranky 2-year-old son off the plane, when he wailed and screamed so loudly they could not even deliver their pre-flight safety instructions.

Honesty, after a Wisconsin woman called 911 to report a drunken driver, whom she identified as herself. Police said Mary Strey, 49, told the dispatcher, “I’ve been drinking all night long. I don’t want to hurt anybody.’’

Bad week for:

Doing your job, after Cpl. Joshua Rowell of the Stockton, Utah, police department was suspended for ticketing the mayor’s son for driving without a license. The new officer didn’t realize what he had done until he handed the ticket to the court clerk. “She looked at it and said, ‘Hey, you know you just gave the mayor’s son a ticket?’ And I said, ‘Oh, crap.’’’

Barter, after 43-year-old Susan Finkelstein, a die-hard Philadelphia Phillies fan, was charged with offering an undercover officer sex in exchange for World Series tickets. Her lawyer called her “a nice lady overcome with Phillies fever.”

Bipartisanship, after a veto statement issued by Republican California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger contained a message—directed at the bill’s Democratic author—embedded in the first letter of every line, which spelled out “F--- you.” A Schwarzenegger spokesman insisted it “was just a weird coincidence.’’
