In Mississippi Delta, Catholic abuse cases settled on cheap

In Mississippi Delta, Catholic abuse cases settled on cheapThe IHOP in Southhaven, Mississippi, was an unlikely place to settle a sex abuse claim against the Catholic Church. The Rev. James G. Gannon, the leader of a Wisconsin-based group of Franciscan Friars, arrived at the crowded pancake house with copies of a legal settlement for La Jarvis D. Love, who had arrived with his wife and three young children. As La Jarvis skimmed the four-page agreement, his thoughts flickered back more than two decades to the physical and sexual abuse he says he suffered at the hands of a Franciscan Friar at a Catholic grade school in Greenwood.

Only passenger on a Delta flight has the time of his life with the crew

Only passenger on a Delta flight has the time of his life with the crewHave you ever wished you could have a whole plane to yourself? Same.One lucky man, Vincent Peone, recently found himself in that rare position, and as you may imagine it did not suck.Upon learning he was the only passenger on a Delta flight, Peone — who also happens to be a director — recorded his unique experience and spliced together clips to make a hilarious video."Last week @Delta gave me my own private jet…kind of," Peone tweeted alongside the footage.SEE ALSO: Passenger and tarmac worker play rock-paper-scissors through plane windowIn the video you'll see Peone getting special treatment from Delta employees before he even boards the plane."Good evening ladies and gentleman, we're about to board our flight to Salt Lake City from Gate 5, would the only passenger on this flight kindly board at this time," an airport employee announces, to which Peone says, "That's me," and grabs his bag."I'm going to record this," Peone says to an employee as they walk across the tarmac to the plane. He then asks her if she's ever seen anyone fly alone on a plane before, and, crushing his history-making dreams, she says, "Yes they have. Sorry." Peone also recorded crew members "adding weight" to the plane "because there are no people" and himself enjoying a drink while the flight attendant welcomed him and only him over the speakers."Good evening Vincent, and welcome aboard. We look forward to taking care of you today. If you need any assistance getting settled we're delighted to serve you. To ensure an on-time departure please remain in your seat," she said.After Peone's plane landed, he stopped by the cockpit to meet and personally thank his pilots for his private flight, and proceeded to pose for a photograph outside the plane.In an interview with the Washington Post, Peone said he believes the unique circumstance was the result of the flight being rescheduled. He also confirmed that he was allowed to pick his own seat, which is a real dream."I sat window and aisle. I was tempted to try to set a record to sit in every single seat for like, two minutes on the flight, so that I could actually sit everywhere. But I didn't feel that ambitious," he explained.Though Delta hasn't officially reached out to its star passenger, the airline's Twitter account did reply to the video.> Hi Vincent! That looks like an awesome experience! Thank you for the shoutout, and we truly appreciate you for choosing Delta! Take care. ✈️ AJM> > — Delta (@Delta) August 12, 2019It's always nice to hear about positive travel experiences every once in a while, and this one was truly impressive.
