Web searches you should avoid...

A few years ago I decided it was a bad idea to self diagnose my medical ailments using WebMD. I am not a doctor nor do I know anything about medicine. It is tragic to discover I have numerous incurable diseases. While the true problem is actually the common cold.

On that same note. I was browsing aircraft accidents. I don't recommend this activity. I decided to look at accidents that took place in 1982, the year I was born. Resist clicking. I directed my browser to and found an unusual accident. Below I provide the excerpt.

"On final approach, the Captain, who had a history of 
mental illness, put the inboard engines into reverse 
thrust in an attempt to destroy the aircraft. The aircraft 
crashed short of the runway while the First Officer and 
Flight Engineer attempted to restrain him."

There are just some things that you don't want to know about.

Honor Guard

Honor Guard
Watched an Honor Guard transfer a fallen Marine (not the pictured Honor Guard but one similar). Makes you think about a lot of things. But mostly about family and friends.
