    Yeah, but these younglings don't have a clue who they are. Besides, she's dead and he's "Extra Chrispy"

    It has always been so. The saving grace for civilization is that the their five minutes of fame is blown away by the mists of time and substance.

    A Kardashian obituary in fifty years will be a short one!

    I friended him on facebook. He's local. I think the gofundme was a bad idea. Otherwise, I think he paid his debt to society. (is paying it if you consider probation). He seems like a nice kid. You could look at some ALPA transgressions that have come back and make that case the kid deserves a chance. He needs to make it happen on his own, though. No favors.

    It'd be a more believable story if the headline was, "Barefoot Bandit out of jail, decides to turn life around by learning to fly by the rules," and he was funding the venture through his own hard work. Anything else seema like a quick money grab.

    My first thought was, "if he wasn't supposed to profit from his story, what does he call the proceeds from the GoFundMe page that are intended for flight training USING his 'rising phoenix' story?"

    Anyone want to guess where he'll go from here?
    I'm thinking some sort of armed robbery.

    He works at a law firm and couldn't figure out the Feds would shut him down. Strike what I said before he's a moron.

    Hey, Frank Abagnale got a job with the Feds and is still making bank as a security consultant because of the talent he showed in his misspent youth. I say we give young Colton a chance.
