In the Hollywood version of the Kwame James story, he becomes an NBA All-Star, helps achieve world peace and, of course, lives blissfully ever after. While the real-life plot hasn't followed quite that arc, perhaps it's headed toward a happy ending. (via SpoFi)

Great story. I really didn't expect it to be as entertaining as it was.

And by "entertaining" I mean "interesting". Hrmm.

excellent, thanks

and I really tip my hat to those passengers self-control, they simply subdued a guy who was about to kill them all and they didn't hurt him

Very interesting story. I was fascinated by how psychologically damaging the incident was to James. It definitely had long aftereffects on his life. I wish him the best.
