A friend recently used the phrase “human decency”. As with many phrases, it’s used in passing without really thinking of what it means. So, I did some research.
Harvey Mackey tells the story of a friend who was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. There was a 45-minute delay in taking off and then the plane had to make an unexpected landing in Sacramento. The flight attendants announced people could get off the aircraft if they would return in 30 minutes.
