Isn't ConAir a movie about violence?

No one in the general public will ever connect with the name ConAir.

The strange obsession with finding a name has in itself already placed the very real issue on the backburner. The looks of "huh?" whenever it is brought up will speak volumes.

Are the terms "scam" and "money laundering" not clear enough?

Point being that the obsession with "finding a name" will prove to be one step too cute if this very real travesty fades to the background.

What's with the obsession?
