I can't really weigh in without my opinion of Nadia Suleman clouding the issue. I think that when you willingly go to great lengths to have multiples when you already have six children, it shouldn't be up to an airplane full of people to just deal with it if you can't control your eight two-year-olds. It has nothing to do with me being familiar with the difficulties of calming children on an airplane, believe me.
I have no idea what she was thinking, maybe that the fame and the book deals would bring in all kinds of money, and she could bask in the glow of her cute little children and all the attention. Who knows? I can't even imagine the despair she must feel now that she realizes she's no longer the huge media sensation, and she's now saddled with fourteen kids, eight of whom are at an extremely needy age. I pity her, but mostly I'm just disgusted by her. Those poor children. I hope they grow up to have some semblance of a normal life. But all the pity in the world doesn't make it okay for her to take over an airplane and get snotty when someone else expresses dismay over their behavior.
