As I expected all along, Steven Slater pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal mischief this morning and took a deal that would keep him out of jail. He'll have to pay JetBlue $10,000 to cover the cost of the emergency slide as well.
I have yet to be contacted by the media for my thoughts on the story, so I'll put them here. Don't call me: I couldn't care less what happens to this guy. Although I fully expect that he has a future in reality TV. He'll be the host of a show on Bravo or some other two-bit network within a year. He has to find some way to pay that fine.
