    Watching CNN right now ... apparently one of the Navy's precision jets crashed into a house in Beaufort, S.C.

    What's the ETA on video of this showing up? I know the Blue Angels tape all their performances, and I'm sure there were plenty of civilian cameras aimed at the sky.

    I think Beaufort was the place where The Great Santini, a great Robert Duvall flick, was filmed. He died at the end of the movie because he stayed with his flamed out jet fighter because otherwise it would have crashed into the town.

    Damn. Hadn't heard about this. Damn.
     
  8. Charleston Post and Courier reporter who wrote Sunday's story on the crash also wrote about getting a ride with the same pilot a year earlier.

    Reporter did a great job writing a story to show the pilot's personality. That's sad news.

    And the Today show had a story about whether air shows are safe. Yeah, because this happens ALL the time. I mean...

    Idiots. Sad news about the crash.
