Overblown


Tragic? Yes. But the story of the Boeing 777 that crash-landed in San Francisco should be put into perspective. Across America, more people died in house fires, car crashes, and from shootings. Those stories will never make the national news because they did not involve grainy footage of a plane coming in too low. This was pilot error, and that should be the end of it. This happened on Saturday, for crying out loud.

More attention should be paid to the fact that people grabbed their belongings and then tried to exit the aircraft. Never, ever do that.
