Unformatted sample text from the term paper:
two weeks ago, two employees of the airline got into a physical altercation while on the clock. In the course of their regular between-flight duties, the two employees first got
into a verbal altercation, when the first flight attendant, hereafter named "Sally", threw an apple at a second flight attendant, hereafter named "Ronald", who then threw the apple back at
