Tweet When a plane crashes into a home 6.3 miles from one's residence, it can certainly shake you. The Space Gal and I were both up with the Space Kid when the news hit that a commuter plane crashed in Clarence, a quaint burg just east of us. It's not everyday you see people you know on the national news. SG used to work in the local media so she was exchanging text messages with the reporter that was live on the scene (who was almost brought to tears after interviewing the brother of one of the victims). It's all very sad. I was on Facebook earlier in the evening and knew from the Turk's status that he was traveling, but his message said he was in Detroit, so I did breathe a big sigh of relief. If you have a minute today, say a prayer for the 49 that perished in Western New York last night and for the firefighters that moved quickly to control the crash scene and make sure no others lost their lives.
