They were on their way to a memorial service.
I don’t want to be extremely cold-hearted here, but SERIOUSLY?
This doesn’t seem real. In what universe did it seem like a good idea to put that many integral members of the country’s leadership on ONE plane?
And what stupid sonofabitch would try to land a plane in the fog more than once, if at all?
Poland might have the population with the highest IQs on independent tests, but this situation definitely lends credence to all of those Polack jokes (like the submarine with the screen door), doesn’t it?
Having gotten my bitchy incredulity out of the way, I will say that my thoughts are with the country, and I hope that they don’t suffer any more unrest than is absolutely necessary to get their government back in order after this horrible tragedy.
