Traveling in Style

ABOARD THAI AIRWAYS TO LOS ANGELES John Mark Karr, the suspect in the death of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, sipped champagne and ate fried king prawns in business class Sunday after being put aboard a flight to Los Angeles to face charges in the United States.

Dinner on board, served on a starched white tablecloth with silverware, was one many passengers would envy. Karr started with a pate, then had a green salad with walnut dressing. The main course was fried king prawn with steamed rice and broccoli. Karr drank a beer, crushing the can with his hands when it was empty, then moved on to a glass of French chardonnay with his main course.

Seems pretty appropriate treatment for a confessed child murderer, eh? I hope he condescended to give all those giggling stewardesses his autograph. Maybe when he gets home the airline will roll out a red carpet as he descends the staircase from the airplane cabin, and play "Hail the Conquering Hero" as he steps lively onto the Tarmac and strolls across the concourse.

I don't know if the guy's guilty, or just a nutcase. Either way, he's getting far better than he deserves.
