what does the sound of one hand clapping sound like?

ONE-ARMED MAN IN FINE ROW
(Australia) - A one-armed man who took too long to unload luggage at Melbourne airport was given a parking ticket. Now the airport authority has threatened to take him to court if he doesn't pay the fine. Stephen McKenzie-McHarg was told by an airport parking officer he could park in a bus zone to help his family with their bags if he was quick. But while his motor was still running, and he was struggling with the luggage, another parking inspector wrote him a ticket. "I've been without an arm since I was 21. Now I'm 54 and used to physical work, but I knew I was in trouble," he said this week. "I said to the first inspector, 'I've traveled five hours from the country and I've got two women to pick up with six big suitcases.' The head man said, 'Be quick.'" "I wasn't 30 seconds, but the next little fella threw the book at me." McKenzie-McHarg wrote a letter challenging the $66 fine, but without success. Melbourne airport then threatened to take him to court. McKenzie-McHarg has vowed to fight his case in court. "I'm fighting it on principle. I feel very much discriminated against," he said. "Australians are supposed to be compassionate, helpful people and the ones I know are. "I'd like them to apologize and change their ways. Next time the fellow might have just one leg."
