Blond Bimbo Passenger Thinks Penn Prof From Italy is a Terrorist

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An olive-complexioned, curly-haired University of Pennsylvania economics professor was deeply focused while scribbling an algebraic equation Thursday night, waiting aboard an American Airlines flight scheduled to take off from Philadelphia to Syracuse, N.Y.

He didn`t have time to talk to the passenger next to him - a blond-haired woman wearing flip-flops who appeared to be in her 30s.

His behavior, his looks, and the little that he said to his seatmate apparently frightened her. She passed a note to a flight attendant."

I suck at math; I wouldn`t know a differential equation from a nursery rhyme, but I wouldn`t mistake it for an Arabic code for a terrorist attack.

Perhaps we should rethink "if you see something say something"; some folks are just clueless idiots.

Not everyone who is olive-complexioned is an Islamic terrorist; I suspect the blond bimbo is a Trump supporter. Perhaps she was offended because the professor was too engrossed in his algebraic equation to flirt with her.

The 41-minute flight was delayed by two hours as the olive-skinned Italian professor was questioned, welcome to Trump`s America.
