Recent NYC Tragedies

Thursday, January 15th – US Airways plane crashed into the Hudson River.  The tail of the plane could be seen from my office.  Kind of surreal to see that kind of thing in the water.  It was unbearly cold that day, too.

Thursday, January 22nd – Van crashing in Chinatown killed 2 children, wounded many.  That’s where I buy my groceries!  My $4-a-dozen Asian pears!

I wonder if this proves that air travel is safer than land travel.  You can survive in one piece from a plane crash but may suffer much more from walking legally on a sidewalk…

Sigh, why is New York such an “eventful” city?
