Commentary: Bad Passenger

He's the one who pushes to the head of the line because he's got first-class tickets --- and a first-class attitude that's all about himself. Don't look now, it's the "Insufferably Bad Passenger." Commentator Baxter Black has this tale on an easy-to-spot irritant of modern travel.

Baxter Black
Baxter Black can shoe a horse, string a barbed wire fence and bang out a Bob Wills classic on his flat top guitar. A cowboy poet and former large animal veterinarian, Baxter was raised in New Mexico and spent most of his workin' life in the mountain west tormenting cows. Black now lives in Arizona and travels the country tormenting cowboys.
