crash

crash

A plane has crashed in Queens. Apparently the plane crashed on takeoff from Kennedy, so it was loaded with fuel. They have closed all the bridges and tunnels going into and out of the city.

It's interesting to see how this is dealt with. This could be an ordinary plane crash, one caused by mechanical failure or such. But given recent events, the panic button has been hit.

Regardless, it still gives me a very leaden feeling in the pit of my stomach. The wisps of smoke I can see in the distance are bringing back very bad feelings.

I never thought I would say I hope there was a problem with the engine.

I hope it was engine trouble too. What is extra creepy is: A) It happened in New York again and B) It is two months and a day later 11/12.

Creepy in the extreme, and on the Veteran's Day holiday too. Deja-vu as I saw this on the news & rushed to the computer to check to see if my blog friends in NY were ok.

hi. i'm from queens. and i'm northwest of the rockaways, so i'm okay. just thought i'd reassure...whoever.

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection. by holdem poker

'Creation science' has not entered the curriculum for a reason so simple and so basic that we often forget to mention it: because it is false, and because good teachers understand exactly why it is false. What could be more destructive of that most fragile yet most precious commodity in our entire intellectual heritage - good teaching - than a bill forcing honorable teachers to sully their sacred trust by granting equal treatment to a doctrine not only known to be false, but calculated to undermine any general understanding of science as an enterprise? by party poker
