Alec Baldwin Kicked Off Flight, Starts Feud

Must have been a pretty good word!
Alec Baldwin, a.k.a. "the famous Baldwin," was kicked off an American Airlines flight last week after a bit of a scuffle with the flight staff. Baldwin was playing Words With Friends (an insanely popular Scrabble-like game) on his cell phone, and refused to stop when asked. 
 
According to Baldwin, he was innocently playing while the plane was sitting idle at the gate. Presumably Baldwin felt that his Words With Friends game was no threat to the flight, but it hardly matters. When the flight attendants tell you to turn off your cell phones and electronic devices, you pretty much have to turn off your cell phones and electronic devices, even if you think it is silly!
