I just hope they are not referring to "little people" (previously known as midgets and dwarves)
That was my original thought; it was only on the second reading that children came to mind, which is what I'm sure they meant. I wonder how many people were offended by this...
Sounds like Scarface to me."Say hello to my 'little passenger.'"
actually i live in that area, and i haven't seen that sign before...a bit disturbing. They do have a play area on the first floor for children, and im wondering if that is what the sign is referring to.
Meh, even if it's unclear or confusing it's still a proper use of quotation marks, given that "little passengers" is being used as a euphemism for children.
good thing this isn't the blog of improper quotation marks, then, eh?
Someone at the Des Moines airport relly likes quatation marks, it seems. I happened to take a look at their website after reading this post, where I learned you can fly to "17" destinations non-stop from Des Moines. See for yourself:http://www.dsmairport.com/Travel_Info/Non_Stop_Airlines.htm
