psa 182 was an accident caused by not seperating general traffic with passanger air traffic. Could have happened else where (and did). Its not like the plane took off and crashed into a building. It was pilot error, they crashed into a cessna.

Correct, but stating "San Diegans have nothing to worry about" is a bit presumptive in light of that accident. Tell that to the people who were in those houses and cars near Dwight & Nile that day.

Oh, that's right... you can't. They're DEAD.

It's somewhat reminiscent of the people who labeled Titanic "practically unsinkable".

No its not, I used my phrase in present- tense. Its not like I said the people on dwight and nile had nothing to worry about that day. It was a terrible accident, air traffic control was reformed, and the world moved on. Thats how it goes. And if you think that because of this accident people in SD need duck and cover every time an f-19 flies over their head, thats your opinion. I just dont agree.

Trying to compare an air tragedy in which a pilot failed to see a small air craft while moving at several hundred miles an hour in 1973 to-hitting ice berg, in an ice patch, after attempting evasive action, while going about 7 miles an hour, in the dark, in 1913 is just not cutting it imo..

Do you take everything in real life as literally as you do here at C-D? Is everyday life strictly black and white to you?

I'm a math wiz. I only deal with the literal, the definable, and the logical. If you want to talk about the subjective willy nillies, perhaps a city data scrap booking club would be more to your liking...

I'll work on my math skills if you promise to work on your sense of humor/riposte skills. Deal?

fair enough. Let us go back to the origional topic, do find fleet week disturbing? Or the stunt of buzzing the bay bridge offensive? I sure don't. People are out there to have a good time, and if anything i think thats what the victims of 9-11 would want.

Does yankee stadium go up in an uproar of patriotism when some fighter jets or attack helicopters buzz the stadium before a game or do people out there get upset and offended??
