Thoughts on NYC Plane Crash

A couple of unrelated thoughts popped up when i saw the news story about Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle's plane crashing into a high-rise apartment building in NYC.

The first one was WTF is the FAA and Homeland Insecurity doing, allowing any aircraft to fly at that altitude anywhere near Manhattan?

The second is why is everyone crying over the guy who crashed his plane, while there has not been word one about the victims whose high-priced homes have been made into toast because some sports star wanted a joy ride? Even if nobody was killed, at least three people/families are homeless, and probably a dozen more need to move out due to water and smoke damage. Idiot media once again picks the easy story to tell, and ignores the real story.

And one wonders anyway about a player who has gone through 7 teams in 9 years.
Lidle pitched with the Philadelphia Phillies before coming to the Yankees. He began his career in 1997 with the New York Mets and also pitched for Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Oakland A's, Toronto Blue Jays and Cincinnati Reds
