Fear when flying

All of the attention paid to the passenger forcibly ejected from the United Flight isn’t because we’re insensitive to the plight of Syrians or possible collusion with the Russians; the attention is being paid precisely because the rough treatment of the doctor who had already paid for his seat has so many of us asking what has happened to our society, and to our civility and principles, that we now find ourselves with this sort of episode. Put another way: It’s of a piece with many other things.
