    Relax, Michael’s fine. It’s just a case of comic bad timing, that’s all.

    33 years ago my next-door neighbor and good friend was late coming home from Chicago. We heard about the crash of a plane whose engine had fallen off. I know the feeling of horror the Patterson’s are feeling. My neighbor was on that plane, but I know Michael is OK, because I’ve read the strips where he is an adult and father of his own kids.

    Use of the words “further investigation” imply that particular crash happened some time ago.

    You want to think your loved-one is safe, but until you know for sure, it tears at you, been there when my son flew to Central America and we had no contact for several days.

    Once we got a phone call and my wife answered. The voice on the other end said “Oh thank God you’re alive!” Seems that someone of her name (ours is not a common one) was killed in a car accident and the name broadcasted on the radio.

    Or some of us are so old that this is all new again for us.
    Also, my neighbor never use to call when he was out all night. His wife found out later that he lost a leg in a crash. He didn’t die but he wished he did when he finally got home.

    Pay no attention to the small minded nay-sayers. I am sure it was a painful, traumatic loss and probably still evokes sadness 33 years later.

    I remember that day – hearing it on the radio – and thinking how horrible it must have been for all the passengers as they felt the airplane roll over sideways and knew they were soon going to die.

    And what is sadder still is that it was preventable. Had the pilot not pulled the stick back to lose airspeed and thereby stalling the left wing – he probably would have made it back to the airport.

    American subsequently changed their pilot training and procedures but that didn’t help those killed in the crash.
