PLane Crash in Buffalo

That plane that went down outside Buffalo last night landed in Clarence, the town where I grew up. In fact, it crashed just up the street from where my good friend Kevin Chase grew up, and where his mom still lives. Fortunately, Ma Chase is fine, not even rattled enough to call her son in CT and wake him up to tell him.

Kevin was best man at Budd Bailey's wedding, and you can read Budd's account of what it like when a plane crashes in your home town, and you work for the newspaper, here.

When I saw this on the news last night I was wondering if you knew anyone in the neighborhood where Continental fell from the sky. Such a terrible tragedy for those 49 folks and their families!

My mom lives just north of Marge, on Goodrich Road, and she didn't call me either. Granted, I'm in Buffalo, but was asleep already. That was some wakeup news at 5am.
