Plane crash on Indianapolis’ West Side

Local news yesterday broke this story about a plane that went down on my side of town.  My wife’s best friend lives in the neighborhood where the plane crashed into a retention pond.  The most fascinating part of the follow-up story though, is that the pilot’s son appears to have saved the rest of the occupants by deploying the safety parachute, a feature of this model of plane, while his father was incapacitated by a stroke, or other medical ailment.

    I heard about this, this morning, on B&T. I didn’t realize that it was so close.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
