    It has now been said that 2 people are dead, but the FBI has said it is not a terrorist attack. I just hope they are right.

    It probably was not a terrorist attack -- the plane too small, the building not a sufficiently attractive target -- but I'm concerned by the idea that there are planes buzzing around the city that NORAD doesn't even track!

    Someone get Dubya a copy of My Pet Goat.

    I think I read about this in the DAILY NEWS. And yeah, the building seems so non descript and plain, what would posess a terrorist to crash a plane into it? unless someobody important lives/lived there.

    That should rule out terrorism.

    *Waits for conspiracy theorists to make a correlation between Sept.11th and Oct.11th*

    I was shocked and completely saddened when I learned who had been in the plane that had crashed into that NYC high-rise! Cory Lidle was such a nice guy. I liked him a lot even when he wasn't a Yankee! I always thought he was cute. He had a wonderful smile and he always seemed to showcase it!:smile: And those eyes! He had the kind of eyes that make me melt! How sad that he died doing something that he only recently discovered his passion for. Seeing and hearing his twin brother on television (knowing that Cory was dead) was a most surreal experience. They were fraternal twins but looked almost identical. I wish only the best for his widow and their son. I hope they will find the strength to go on with out him. They have been in my thoughts and prayers since yesterday. Rest in peace, Cory Lidle.

    it was such a bizarre thing...i was on the phone with someone around 3pm when they said "quick turn on the tv"...the first details were that either a helicopter or a small plane flew into an apartment building...so i didnt immediately assume terrorism, just based on that...so i paid attention to the news for a while, but obviously the stories kept changing as more details came in

    what was really weird is after i took a shower i was in my room & turned on Mike & The Maddog (local sports talk show for those not in the area)...they were interviewing darryl strawberry, and suddenly on the side of the screen i see a hand pop in and give Mike a piece of paper, and his face just drops...he nudges Chris & shows it to him, all whiel Strawberry is still talking...they waited til the interview was over & said that ESPNNews was reporting the plane was Cory Lidle's...so it was this strange combination of like, real-world events colliding with sports

    Further conspiracy:

    The plane crashed 10/11/06

    If you turn that upside down you get: 90/11/01.

    And how wise of the news to publish that "Small Planes are Exempt from the Flying within city limits rules"

    Might as well just give them the keys and get out of the way.
