Odd Twist of Fate-9/11 Widow Perishes In Flight 3407 Crash

In an odd twist of fate, 9/11 widow Beverly Eckert who had met with President Obama this past Friday was on board fated flight 3407 last night as it crashed into home in the suburb's of Buffalo last night. She was in route to Buffalo to celebrate what would have been her husband's 59th birthday. Life sometimes has a habit of giving us bitter irony and this one is about as cruel as they come.

Word on the news is suggesting that the cause more than likely was ice on the wings, though no one will say so officially. Whatever happened, the crew did not even get a chance to send out a MayDay before plunging to earth, taking the planes passengers to their explosive and fiery deaths. Was the FAA's policy on Auto Pilot use to blame? Would they admit it if it was?
