    RIP Kobe Bryant.. what a tragedy.
    We had one of those in St. Louis in the 90s, traffic reporter went down in a helicopter. If you Google that, it happens.

    We had one in the 80's as well. Traffic reporter and pilot crashed and died less than a mile from my house.

    It was very foggy so probably was foolish to go up.

    It strikes me watching news reports of this how much we could use some more heroes since he seemed to have inspired a lot of people. Aside from basketball skills, I don't really get the admiration for this particular figure.

    I had a short term stint doing field work in the Rockies via helicopter. I would never fly in one again voluntarily and might not for pay or job obligations.

    I'm not a sports fan and don't understand sports figure idolatry but he seemed to inspire young people in a good way and I'm very sorry for his family and fans.

    I wonder if the pilot was enamored with Bryant and made a very bad choice, just wanting to please him.
    Such a tragedy......for the families of everyone on that flight.
    I wonder if any of the passengers voiced their concern with the fog?

    She had 4 kids with him so I am sure she loved him. They have a baby who will never know her dad. Plus people do heal and forgive infidelity.

    Is infidelity the new euphemism for rape?
