A passenger after my own heart...

I loved this story: a man was behaving erratically on a flight from Minneapolis to Boston and a couple of the passengers helped out the flight attendants and subdued him. But what I loved was this happy ending:

>>Hayden's wife [Hayden was one of the passengers who subdued the guy] of 42 years, Katie, who was also on the flight, was less impressed. Even as her husband struggled with the agitated passenger, she barely looked up from "The Richest Man in Babylon," the book she was reading.

"The woman sitting in front of us was very upset and asked me how I could just sit there reading," Katie Hayden said. "Bob's been shot at. He's been stabbed. He's taken knives away. He knows how to handle those situations. I figured he would go up there and step on somebody's neck, and that would be the end of it. I knew how that situation would end. I didn't know how the book would end."
