And finally, hide under a rock and propel yourself back to the stone ages. That's the only way you will be secure. So, now on to the internet and my cell phone. Anyone listening in?

When the sh&@ hits the fan! They should have made the two morons clean up the mess with their bare hands! Real stupidity. And then after that, they should have been charged with a serious crime - explosives handling. Jail time!

Very interesting story. And yes, I just want to read about it, not really experience it. Good story!

I'm especially amused by moms on cell phones with kid in tow...stumbling down the stairs with mom totally clueless. Gotta video tape that someday and post it to YouTube!

Eating and driving IS dangerous...it's a distraction and I think there is a slight more chance of choking when eating while driving because you're just not paying attention. When you're driving, drive; when you're eating, eat; when you're drinking, drink; do not mix them all up.

Unfortunately I smell another revengeful terrorist attack coming sometime to a city near you (in America). This is dangerous stuff! They already mentioned they would seek revenge. We need to take this serious. Sad, so sad that 16 innocent people were killed by this man, but I too agree that he should not be given the death penalty, but certainly should not be given parole. He really needs to remain in prison for life. He created a very serious and dangerous international incident. Stay safe everyone and peace to all.

Wow! This is a sad day. Sad for her, her family/loved ones, friends, fellow classmates. I can't even imagine the horror of this happening. Gotta be a better way to cope. Everyone keep your ears and eyes open and look for warning signs and DO SOMETHING! Rest In Peace young one.

I don't see the driver going to prison unless he was drunk, escaped the scene of the accident, or lacked the necessary insurance. If he has insurance, they will pay. Still a bad situation.

Well, at least he always had something to write with close at hand. I just wonder if any of the lead in the pencil may have leaked into his body. Isn't lead bad for you or does that not apply to the lead in pencils.

"THE MILITARY" has no say in where they are stationed. This is determined by governments of said countries under a treaty called the "Status of Forces Agreement". Glad the pilot is okay and am glad no injuries or damage to property here on Okinawa.

First of all my condolences to the entire family. But is this really going to be dominating news again in the U.S.? I know breast cancer prevention is a big deal but they already made too much of it in the news in the U.S. over Angelina Jolie's decision to have a double mastectomy. Doesn't she want a little privacy or is it just that she's a celebrity? Too much information if you ask me. Still, my condolences to her family.

Wow! Funny - "Stole a camera and caught by a camera". Not too smart a man...and all that stress of being arrested on top of having jet lag. Hey wait, maybe he can use that as an excuse in court: "I had jetlag and wasn't thinking rationally".

Man, I am speechless. First and foremost my sympathies to the Spadea family. I do want to hear the results of the full investigation to find out what happened. This is incredibly sad. What news to hear on Memorial Day no less. May he be in a better place now. Be careful out there people and stay safe. This applies to everyone.
