Steven Slater To Make Appearance Tonight!

I hear famed JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater--the one who notoriously opened the hatch of the plane and fled with two beers--is going to see the off-Broadway topical revue NEWSical tonight.

He's the one we thought was a great hero for refusing to deal with guff from passengers, but then when the facts came in, we started to thinking maybe he was just a pissy queen who deserved to get sacked. (And he did.)

But now that Slater's sobered up and developed a healthier attitude, he's a kind of fascinating footnote and endearing mini-celebrity.

Anyway, NEWSical has a sketch in which Michael West plays Slater, so the real guy is going to check it out--and maybe even get into the act, a little birdie tells me.

And then he'll probably open the hatch and flee with two beers.

Before the show starts, he can go up and down the aisles, reminding everyone to turn off "all electronic devices...."

I can sort of understand why you can't ignore Sarah Palin, but what's your excuse for this guy?

A scary freak! Get him away! (Though I sort of want to meet him out of morbid curiosity.)

Wasn't he at the Out 100? He's a weird kind of anti-hero for our time.
