I always felt Pan Am was America's unofficial national airline. My first flight was on Pan Am and even now, decades later, I still get nostalgic talking about it, maybe because the event seemed bigger due to my young age. Back then America was number one but now Asian airlines, airports and service are generally better than America's. Can't see me flying Malaysia anymore though. Two planes down so close in time is bound to rattle the customer base. That's just human nature

Kaimycahl, my thoughts exactly. No three year old child should ever be on a street unsupervised. The grandfather bears responsibility and the woman driving the car should be released. Tragic situation all the way around, however. RIP.

I really wondered how this could have happened after I read the headline and before reading the story. Didn't quite see that angle, and, as others have posted, this is more like a sexual assault. I wonder if the creep would have been disappointed had she been going commando? On a more serious note, I hope they catch him and pull his skivvies as far up as possible while he's wearing them.

I hate cats but no matter how pesky they are, I would never resort to killing, torture, etc. to get rid of them. This is a despicable act by a sorry individual.

If only we could get rid of idiotic mentality like this. Happy Fourth of July. Hopefully, no shootings will take place.

So, they all ingested the same thing in the same quantity at the same time and it had the exact same effect on all of them at the same time? I agree with Frungy.

My tip: send the researchers home and spend the money on the people. That will improve GNH. Simple but effective.

Peddling means selling things. Pedaling means moving something that has pedals. That said, I would really like to pedal this course.

Never heard Japanese giant hornets called "sparrow wasps" before. Makes them sound kinda cute.
