Two bad crashes today are dominating the news.
31 Marines were killed when their helicopter went down in Iraq. It was apparently weather related. As James Joyner routinely notes, those things just ain’t that safe.
And 10 people are dead from a train derailment in Los Angles. The wreck was caused when someone decided to commit suicide by parking on the train track.
Tragically, he brought 9 more with him and hurt dozens. Then the shithead got out the car and watched it happen. (An earlier radio report I heard said he committed suicide. I assume later reports are more accurate)
