    I was going to throw this in the NFL thread but thought too many would miss it if I did. Ah, the good old days.

    Too funny.

    I wish we had a little more of that type of attitude. Now the person would have sued for 12 million dollars and the jury would have awarded them 200 million.

    The thing is that these days, threatening to sue over something as silly as paper airplanes doesn't seem that crazy. There have been suits filed over much sillier things recently. (Anyone remember the guy suing for millions over a dry cleaner messing up a suit?) I love the response. Today, it would probably result in some kind of lawsuit by the letter writer.

    That's classic.

    IIRC the pants guy was also a judge

    That is a great response, but I have to wonder if it is legit.

    They should have had a paper airplane theme day at the next game.

    Ah, I love my hometown. :)

    Btw, the response letter in the OP didn't work for me. Here's an alternate link in case anyone else had the same problem.
