    Damn, that's scary. I've taken the Comair Atlanta-to-Lexington route twice in the last year or so.

    It's probably Osama's doing.

    You hope this wasn't terrorism related.
    Say some prayers, especially for the lone survivor.

    We're being flip in a subject line about a plane crash that kills a bunch of people?
    Yeesh.

    I'll change it myself soon if better sense doesn't prevail first.

    It crashed right after takeoff. Probably not terrorism.

    Terrorists still look for the "big kill." A commuter jet from Lexington to Atlanta doesn't meet the criteria.

    RIP. I hope the passenger makes it, if nothing else other than to provide some perspective.

    Thank you - I'm not trying to be a dick. I just think we need to pick better spots for joking.

    I hopes he makes it too... but not for that cold reason... He's facing a lifetime of mental anguish... God help him

    Which I am no longer convinced they have the ability to pull off.

    Slappy: Few survive these small plane crashes. Perhaps a survivor can shed light on something that may lead to less of them.

    2MCM: Bad way to think. The second you say they can't strike you again, they will.

    My brother's girlfriend is a ComAir flight attendant based in Atlanta.
    She woke up this morning freaking out, because she knows she was lucky that she came home Saturday morning instead of this morning.
    She is still trying to track down all her friends to make sure they weren't on this flight.
