Rick and his wife (plus 2 pilots) survived a private plane crash in the Florida Keys last night. Rick has a broken rib and clavicle. The pilot reported he had no brakes and then overshot the runway.

Glad to see it was not more serious.

Thank God nobody was hurt unlike a couple years ago! It is unreal that another Hendrick plane has crashed! That has to be some low odds!

As in what way? The Buddhist belief that whatever you do comes back to you, e.g. if you do something good, something good will happen to you, and vice versa.

Are you implying that Mr. Hendrick deserved this accident?

You seem to bring this up a lot. Do you even know what Rick did? He bribed Honda officials to give him more cars for his dealership. While that is not a good moral thing to do, he plead guilty for mail fraud, was fined $250k, one year of home confinement and 3 years probation. Also he could not be involved with his business for one year.

Then he had leukemia, then lost his son, grandkids and close friends in an airplane that he owned. Yet for you that is still not enough pittance?

I've seen child molesters have an easier life. Heck, the Obama administration is half full of tax cheaters...but they go on to become Secretary of the Treasury or some other cushy job.... Geesh, what did Hendrick do to you? Oh, I know, his drivers win championships and your driver does not.

Just sayin...

He is a convicted felon and given a pardon by none other than the esteemed Bill Clinton. He should be more like John Madden and start taking a bus to all his races.

Don't get me wrong, the loss of his friends and family members was a tragedy. Always sad when there is loss of life.

I'll let you off the hook. I just don't see how Rick can payback from his misdeeds anymore than he has. Rick also does a lot for charities.

There are much worse sports figures in history that people have forgiven... Mike Vick for example.

What will happen to Joe Paterno...

Karma is a silly notion that provides the victim(s) with a sense of closure.
