Cerabino: Toughening rules for “emotional support animals” on flights
 It’s good to see that American Airlines is taking a stand against the expanding roster of creatures brought aboard commercial airlines as “emotional support animals.” This past week, the airline issued comprehensive restrictions on these animals while outlining the kind of unacceptable behavior that won’t be tolerated...

Cerabino: Popcorn lobby responds to panic at Boca Raton movie theater
 Dear Cinemark management: I am writing on behalf of the National Popcorn Association (NPA), a group of kernel-loving patriots who seek to preserve our precious rights to possess and fire heated corn. These rights were enshrined by Thomas “Jeffy Pop” Jefferson and the rest of our Foundering Fathers, or as we like to call them our...

Cerabino: Old women don’t get a breather from the gig economy
 You may have heard that we are increasingly living in a “gig economy.” Rather than hiring workers for full-time jobs, some employers are  opting for independent workers engaging in freelance short-term work. Brad Smith, the chief executive of Intuit, predicted that these untethered hired hands will make up about 43 percent of...

Cerabino: Pres. Trump club in Palm Beach County not sanctioned nyet
 I feel sorry for former Palm Beach Gardens Councilwoman Annie Marie Delgado. She started a local President Donald Trump club, calling it the “Trump Team 2020 Florida Republican Club” and took the trouble to get the sanctioning blessings of the Republican Party of Florida. And the club’s first meeting earlier this...

Cerabino: Bullied Palm Beach County Schools misfires on safety forum
 The Palm Beach County School District has become gun shy. And by that I mean shy about gun discussions. That’s why the district rescinded its previously granted permission for a school safety forum this week at Olympic Heights High School, a forum titled “Town Hall for Our Lives.” The name, the district belatedly...

Cerabino: Finally, ‘old white guys’ get a seat at the victims’ table
 Finally, now even “old white guys” can feel like victims. I know. I know. We’re usually the perps. But this week, the Florida-based parent company that operates Seasons 52 restaurants has agreed to pay $2.85 million to settle a complaint by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of 254 job applicants...

Cerabino: When it comes to bank robberies, the bigger the better
 If you’re going to pull a bank job, you might be safer going for hundreds of millions of dollars than a hundred bucks. Just consider what happened to Russell Cooper, who was 77 years old four years ago when he ambled with the help of a walker into a Boynton Beach branch of PNC Bank, expecting to withdraw $130 from his account to pay...

Cerabino: Florida high school girl launches bra rebellion
 Does the U.S. Constitution cover a Florida high school girl who shows up for classes without wearing a bra under her shirt? This is not an idle question. The girl is Lizzy Martinez, a 17-year-old junior who went to her Braden River High School classes one day last month in a loose, dark T-shirt and jeans. She Tweeted about what happened next...

Cerabino: If you think the comedian Michelle Wolf was outrageous …


I’m going to get to sex education in Florida’s public schools.
But in a related matter, I first need to say a little something about the ridiculous uproar over the comedian hired to entertain at the annual White House Correspondents’ banquet over the weekend.
