I don't understand this story. This reads "helicopter hit a tower wire" and "the cause of the crash is unknown."

Three cheers to it's author, and my nomination for a new journalism award that I just made-up, called: "Best daily news aneurysm, the cause of which is unknown and under invertigation."

We don't know if it hit the wire after power loss, if so why, if control was lost - pilot error? Mechanical malfunction? So no, we don't the cause. We know what happened, no why is yet availible. Three cheers to yourself, I guess. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 17:54, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Will Obama Extend His Sympathies?Edit

Probably not. He didn't seem to care or comment about the flooding in Illinois when he was having his party on the west coast. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.252.61.169 (talk) 22:48, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

What does that have to do with anything? Is there some basis for that comment? Does Bush read every local paper reading every obituary and write letters expressing his condolences for each one or something? Well, I guess he's got to do something while waiting for Bonanza to come on but I mean some basis among real politicians. 65.1.171.67 03:23, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
