A modest proposal for replacing Guantánamo

having just completed an 11-hour flight on my favorite airline from hell, united, i am moved to suggest that detainees from guantánamo could very easily be placed instead in the economy section of a united 747 and shuttled endlessly back and forth across the atlantic while being forced to watch bad movies and eat tasteless food, all the while being strapped into a seat that, at best, would provide legroom but precious little comfort to a 5 year-old... i seriously doubt it would be a tenth as expensive as guantánamo and the opportunities for escape at 36,000 feet would certainly be minimal...

just a thought...
