I follow John Fea at the Way of Improvement. Today he notes the controversy over reclining airplane seats.
He's 6' 8", so naturally he hates flying.
I wonder though--the Americans with Disability Act requires reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities. Couldn't height, in the context of airplanes, be considered a disability?
Answer: Based on a layman's skim of the ADA text it isn't. The key thing seems to be this definition of disability:as a condition which "...substantially limits one or more major life activities of such individual".
