Hit or Miss

In the wrong place at the right time

The three years I lived in Kirksville, MO, I took the regional commuter flight to St. Louis and back several times.

Almost two years ago, I was en route to New York (to meet Mike and see Avenue Q Off-Broadway). The plane took off from Kirksville and then immediately landed because of engine problems, resulting in the cancellation of my trip.

Last night, that same commuter plane crashed, killing 13.

I feel the same way I did when I saw my undergrad dorm on fire on CNN.
