Heartbroken pals of a Scarsdale teen killed with his parents and two brothers in a fiery Costa Rican plane crash made a grim pilgrimage to the tragic family’s home Monday to try to work through their grief. Jonah Gray, 18, was best friends with middle child William Steinberg, also 18, since both were 2. Gray recalled how they watched “Thomas the Train” and played with Legos before moving on to “The Family Guy” and varsity tennis at Scarsdale High School and basketball at the Westchester Reform Temple. “For the first time in my life, I feel like an adult —

How can anyone read about a tragedy like this one and be concerned with only the language the writer used?

That is cold.

This did turn out to be a tragic family. They were said to be lovely, caring people. Even the boy who did the shooting was said to be a kind, decent kid.

We never know what goes on in any other’s mind. Attempts to guess are always just that. Guesses.

A couple of possible causes jump out. The plane is designed for nine passengers but a waiver can be granted for up to 14. This one had ten passengers and two pilots but how much luggage? The pilot´s turning action suggests they were flying low to enjoy the scenery and were probably blown too close to the mountain and had to attempt a near vertical wing turn trying to miss it but hit treetops with the wing.

Don´t overload a plane and don´t attempt to fly too close to anything in high winds. Very tragic accident that was probably avoidable.

Where are the candles, grief counselors and assorted do gooders? This will give the "grieving teens" something to "grieve" about for the rest of their "grieving" lives. Look at US. Look for them on the news starting another "grieving" foundation.

Five members of a Tacoma Wa. family were killed in a horrific crash in Mexico over the week-end. A married couple, their adult daughter and her two little children. Two other members are in critical condition in the hospital.
Not a good week.

You can speculate that a single propellor driven overloaded aircraft being flownat low level during windy conditions in a mountainous region might run into trouble. If that was a Costa Rican registered aircraft that crashed in that country, who knows if a competent investigation will be done.

Third world airlines. Nope, not me. I am an experienced pilot, and will not risk it with some of these iffy pilots flying aircraft maintained by local mechanics with limited budgets and questionable skills.

One needs to be proactive in risk management. When I traveled in the former soviet states, many times we hired a driver and car recommended by local colleagues, or took the trains rather than flying on some of the sketchy local airlines, mostly flying ancient soviet Tu-154s and Tu-134s. Better to take a whole day driving than die on a junk old soviet airliner maintained by drunks. Smaller countries, and smaller airlines, not good risk management, especially in other than sunny, calm weather. But in any weather, the maintenance in the 3rd world is often sketchy at best.

Russell Simmons halts #NotMe campaign

Russell Simmons has put his #NotMe campaign on ice, Page Six has exclusively learned. After the mogul’s fiery crusade to clear his name over sexual misconduct allegations went mysteriously quiet, his reps told us that Simmons had instead decided “that this is a time for women to speak.” In November and December, the Def Jam co-founder was accused of various forms of sexual misconduct — including rape and attempted rape — by some 13 women. Although he stepped down from his businesses, Simmons said on Instagram that he was committed to proving his innocence. On Dec. 14, he wrote, “Today, I begin

It’s February 2021, just a few weeks into the Oprah Winfrey Administration, and, far from healing America’s divides, it turns out that President Winfrey has only deepened them. Hundreds of thousands of Americans who had voted to re-elect President Trump take to the streets in mass protests in dozens of American cities, wearing white “Keep America Great” hats, carrying “resist!” signs, and driving pickup trucks with gun racks and bumper stickers that say “not my president.” These volunteer activists push Republican Congressmen and senators to vote against every single one of Ms. Winfrey’s cabinet nominees and judicial picks — even the

With DC distracted, immigration
debate reaches critical point

While Washington obsesses over a new book on White House intrigue, the Trump administration is reaching a critical point on the issue of immigration, one of the president´s top priorities and the subject of his most often-repeated campaign promises. There are multiple moving parts: DACA, a border wall, chain migration, the visa lottery, and — hanging over it all — funding the government. But everything hinges on DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, unilaterally imposed by Barack Obama to temporarily legalize nearly 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally when they were young. When President Trump rescinded DACA

President Donald Trump´s son, Donald Trump Jr., slammed his father´s former White House aide and campaign chairman Steve Bannon on Wednesday after outrageous remarks that Bannon made in a book became public. In the book, Bannon told author Michael Wolff that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation would “crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” Bannon added that the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer was "treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***.” Trump Jr. hit back at Bannon following the revelation of his remarks in the book, landing multiple punches on Bannon, who is rapidly becoming an annoyance to

Why latest Trump ‘bombshells’

The veteran journalist Michael Wolff set off a bomb yesterday in the middle of Trumpworld when details emerged from his new inside-the-White-House book, “Fire and Fury.” In the Guardian, the world read with dropped jaw about how former chief strategist Steve Bannon used the words “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” to describe Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russians in July 2016 and said there was “zero” chance the son hadn’t brought the Russians to meet his father. This meeting is a key event in the so-called “Russian collusion” timeline the president and his supporters say was a meaningless dead end. Then an excerpt from

Washington -President Donald Trump warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday that he has a nuclear "button" on his desk at all times and boasted that the US has "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear weapons -- a stunning threat that has once again raised questions over what it takes to actually launch a nuclear warhead.

Among the many things he’s been called — “blunt,” “pathetic,” “calculating” — the one thing Michael Wolff has never been described as is boring. A provocateur and media polemicist, Wolff has a penchant for stirring up an argument and pushing the facts as far as they’ll go, and sometimes further than they can tolerate, according to his critics. He has been accused of not just re-creating scenes in his books and columns, but of creating them wholesale. That’s some context for Wolff’s most explosive bit of reporting to date: A scathing new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” describing

On the afternoon of November 8, 2016, Kellyanne Conway settled into her glass office at Trump Tower. Right up until the last weeks of the race, the campaign headquarters had remained a listless place. All that seemed to distinguish it from a corporate back office were a few posters with right-wing slogans. Conway, the campaign’s manager, was in a remarkably buoyant mood, considering she was about to experience a resounding, if not cataclysmic, defeat. Donald Trump would lose the election — of this she was sure — but he would quite possibly hold the defeat to under six points. That

The federal grand jury handing down indictments for special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t appear to include any supporters of President Donald Trump, according to one witness who recently testified before the panel. “The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,” my source said. “Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]” Of the 20 jurors, 11 are African-Americans and two were wearing “peace T-shirts,” the witness said. “There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.” Mueller was not present.

These associates told the news outlet that it seems like Scaramucci believes he will soon get another whack at a career in Trumpworld.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values.

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind.

(Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government.

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
