"all but coach"?  seriously?  hilarious.  

"democracy is available to all but the majority"

"wealth is available for all but the middle class and poor"

come on.

seat power is not ubiquitous on american, either.  it's on every 3rd
seat or some nonense and there's no way to figure out whether you are
in such a seat.

i identified this early on as one of th emajor factors causing this
service to fail.

bigger seats may not be required.  ac power is.
