Not true, menial labor serves to convince people they don't want to do menial labor and strive for something better. It's up to the individual to find their motivation. Would tablet permissions as a reward work for good behavior? Sure, I don't however think every inmate should get one at the cost to taxpayers.

Agree with a lot of the comments here, I skip flying most of the time. Drove 21 hours each way last vacation to avoid it. As consumers we simply need to demand to know seat configuration before we pay for a flight. I'm a big guy - 6'3" and around 350 lbs. I flew for work a couple of years ago, so coach and they had me in a middle seat. Can't image how unhappy those guys on either side of me were, but it's not my plane so not really my problem.
