About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

More United

Someone saw how United Airlines is trying to rob us and posted this story:

That reminds me of our experience flying to Bolivia last year. On the way down, we missed a connection in Panama, but eventually arrived several hours late.* On the way back, I was able to check-in and get a seat assignment, but my wife was not. She called the United helpline, where the agent told her that since she had missed the connection, the rest of her itinerary had been canceled. She explained that that made no sense, since the two of us were traveling together on the same itinerary, and mine wasn't canceled.
