    There are still people who believes respect, dignity and honour have a meaning, no matter where you live. A tragedy is a tragedy, plain and simple.

    15 people on a 737? Not very efficient.

      It's efficient if you convert the rest of the plane to carry cargo to regions with no road access. Which is what they do.

      It was one of many cargo combi airplanes that make a LOT of money. That airline know what they are doing, and are very effective in doing it.

    I wonder if one of them was a congressman(person). Let's ask Cokie Roberts. She knows all about a particular congressman who went down in this fashion. His genes match hers. But she won't talk about it anymore than Connie Chung will. "It" being what's not talked about, not even here. Any posting of "it" is met with personal attacks here. I guess some people just spaz-out when they hear what's not told on TV.

    @Just Saying...True. Over half of the world's families live on less than 3 dollars per day, if you call that living. Sure, many if not most of them are from Africa, and are ultra-rich in natural resources like oil and diamonds. Yet their bribe-taking leaders are all filthy rich. And those doing the bribing come from countries well known for burning oil, wearing diamonds, and struggleing with obesity epidemics. Maybe once Africa is drained-dry we will see.

    At the current rate there will be more Americans registering as sax-offenders than registering as voters by the year 2016. We love you for this A merica?
