    It is inappropriate to be funny so soon following a crash. But that was, indeed, funny.

    I'd be too overcome with grief to bother with such stuff. You would be too.

    No, I wouldn't. Neither would I be at DP talking or reading about this event or anything associated with it, as I said.

    I know what you said ... I just thought it was irrelevant ... what is relevant is that no one should be laughing about racist jokes involving the tragic deaths and injuries to these people ...

    Asiana Airlines suing Fox affiliate . . .

    for televising bogus pilot's names:

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Asiana said Monday that it will sue a San Francisco TV station that damaged the airline's reputation by using bogus and racially offensive names for four pilots on a plane that crashed earlier this month in San Francisco.An anchor for KTVU-TV read the names on the air Friday and then apologized after a break. The report was accompanied by a graphic with the phony names listed alongside a photo of the burned-out plane that had crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6, killing three and injuring dozens.
    Video of the report has spread widely across the Internet since it was broadcast.
    The National Transportation Safety Board has also apologized, saying a summer intern erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew.
    I doubt they have much of a case since the NTSB apologized.

    -- Have to admit, though, the television anchor was an idiot!

    Should Asiana Airlines win their lawsuit?
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    The same airline that just got done killing three people due to an unqualified pilot with 35 hrs. flying time now has the audacity to sue?????!!!! The CEO of that airline must be Mi Az Hol
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    It's a very gray and gloomy world you live in, then. Racial and language differences are often a source of humor, and it's not pejorative except to those with a chip on the shoulder. In this case, yes, it's somewhat insensitive and bone headed, but it's still funny. And yes, I absolutely hate myself for laughing. Now, can we move on to redneck jokes, Polish jokes, WASP jokes - you know, the one's you think are funny. I don't see any evil intent here.
