News: Anterograde amnesia
I understand the fanbase surrounding the Yankees and all, and it's certainly a tragedy, but it seems like the news media are having a hard time keeping up with all the happenings in our modern world. A member of the House and everyone associated with him is being investigated for an e-mail sex scandal, Amish girls were executed last week, and North Korea, after what may or may not have been a nuclear weapons test, is implicitly threatening war if we don't cave in to them.
Small planes and helicopters go down all the time. I just don't see what's the huge deal.
Then again, I'm not a baseball fan.
