U.S. flight crew held by foreign authorities for 'insulting' Chavez Wow! Be careful what you say in foreign countries. Be sure you know and obey the laws, customs and courtesies of any country you visit. This would have been funny if it hadn't had such serious consequences. Venezuelan jails are probably not as nice as American jails either. Thankfully this crew did not come to any harm but it did cost the airlines.
It does make one appreciate the freedom of speech we have in our country. Think of how many people would be in jail right now just for calling the President crazy!
