Democracy is more subliminal than you think.
Cautionary: results acquired through one round of a fictitious election.
Wondering how ambidextrous people fair, as well.
Over 10 years have passed since JFK, Jr. crashed his airplane into the ocean just off Massachusetts’s Martha Vineyard Coastline. I still remember how long that search was and that the only thing for days that we knew was that luggage had washed ashore. I remember the only way it was recovered was through large efforts on the part of the U.S. Navy, whether or not those efforts were appropriate, which is honestly debatable. (They likely were not.)
Couple that with the Titanic, which remained at the bottom of the ocean floor for over 70 years, although remaining somewhat intact.
Have we found Amelia Earhart or her plane? Did I miss that breaking news?
Airplanes, as they hit, depending on the velocity and speed, split apart into massive fiery parts that burn away. Or, maybe the fuselage remained intact, but sank quickly as usually happens when large amounts of water gush into large holes.
The United States’s Air Traffic Control is near bullet proof, and I say near, because that’s honestly as close as I come to saying anything is bullet proof. We rely on it, but not all Air Traffic Control in all countries operate the same way.
I’m not heartless. I would like to know what happened, but I’m just as willing to accept that it may not be a likely possibility. I’m also just puzzled as to why people think technology and planes wouldn’t fail, why we wouldn’t be able to spot something in an ocean that we don’t normally look at, that’s actually massive.
Yes, if it is in our government’s capacity to help find the plane and we are welcome to do so, we should, but a point by point update on the experience is unnecessary and at a certain point, the search becomes morbid. If we haven’t reached that point yet, we are rapidly approaching it.
I just don’t understand why exactly this plane is garnering so much global attention (is it truly global or is our national media truly hyping a story and making it seem global, as is often the case).
I guess I’m wondering why I keep getting CNN Breaking News Alerts each time they “think they found it”, but then again, I get Breaking News Alerts announcing Oscar winners and sports victories. Perhaps, I should add context, as well.
Mark your calendar: San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Houston Senator Dan Patrick are tossing around April 15 as the date for an immigration debate. Allen Blakemore, Patrick’s top consultant, tol…
It’s possible that this makes me entirely too giddy.
