[58] .Per Smith, he was able to put both armrests down in accordance with Southwest Airlines policy, and both passengers on either side did not object to his presence.^ It appears, in this case, that both parties are being too defensive on an issue that can be resolved on either side by a small concession.

Smith was then removed from the flight after being told he was a safety concern. .After being booked on a later flight and being offered a $100 Southwest Airlines voucher, which he turned down, Smith lashed out at Southwest Airlines on his Twitter account.^ It is so sad to see when God is taken out of the equation the world turns upside down.

Southwest Airlines representatives later released two statements regarding the incident via their blog.[59] In the first statement, Southwest claimed that Mr. Smith "has been known to (...) purchase two .Southwest seats" and cited its "Customer of Size" policy which requires that customers who cannot put their armrests down purchase two seats.^ Everyone went down to Georgia Andrew Burmon Democrats might find their 60th Senate seat in Georgia, but Saxby Chambliss and the GOP are putting up a fight.

In his podcast, Mr. Smith stated that he regularly purchased two seats, and had done so the previous week, because he preferred not having to sit next to anyone, not due to his size. In releasing this statement, Southwest disclosed Smith's personal travel details without his permission. The first statement also claimed that the flight captain has personally determined that Smith was too large to fly. .In its second statement, Southwest contradicted this claim, stating that the captain had not singled out Smith.^ Sean - August 22, 2008 Didn’t Smith claim that The Phantom Menace was really great when it came out?

.Due to Southwest Airlines' inconsistent statements about what happened aboard the aircraft and Smith's repeated assertion that he was in compliance with Southwest's "Customer of Size" policy, it is not known precisely why Southwest's crew chose to remove Smith from the aircraft.^ So, what about the film then?+++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++ Kevin Smith, between his "flashes of brillance" as he was described here and elswhere, is an inconsistent film maker, with alot of road left to hoe.

He also referred to the airline as the "Greyhound of the Air" and vowed to never fly the airline again.[61]
.In his podcast, Smith stated that on his return flight a large female passenger was told to ask him if it was alright that she was sitting next to an empty seat he had bought between them, and it was suggested by Southwest staffers that she may need to purchase an additional seat due to her size, even though she had been placed next to an already-purchased empty seat.^ Phone calls need to be made to these 11 state representatives Thursday morning, May 1.

^ Smith reacted to the email by writing in his blog- For him to call Red State disturbing and challenging strikes me as a badge of honor.

^ Prepare yourself, yet stand ready and shall not be afraid to die…know that everything will be alright on the long run…..even though there is a high possibity our generation may not withness it….but the better days will come..

.Smith's longest Q&A session took place April 2, 2005, at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey.^ Personally, I find Smith’s films to be quite poor – however, he strikes me as a genuine “fan.” I’ve been to his shop in Red Bank, New Jersey and it is some hardcore nerdshit going on there.
