An American Airlines plane headed to London was more than hour into its flight when its pilot decided to turn around and head back to the departure point, Miami, because a female passenger declined to wear a face mask. What a petty, unnecessary move.

Politicians need 'cooling off' periods

America is looking straight into the eyes of a tornado-style political year in 2022, and an even bigger one come 2024. How did democracies in the past handle situations where deeply divisive personalities on the political scene were disruptive to peace and good order?
