Emmys Parody Plane Crash Night Of Comair Disaster

The actual crash in Kentucky killed 49 and left a lone survivor, the copilot, in critical condition.

The parody left, it seems, just one survivor, with a big ginormous freakhead.

I don't know-- should the intro to the show have been cut? Given how brief and seemingly truncated the Conan plane-crash bit is, it maybe was substantially cut at the 11th hour, to keep the basics of it (plane crash to allow Lost) parody) while keeping the actual plane-crash stuff to a minimum.

There was a horrible disaster last night. But plane crashes are always horrible, and happen on occasion. Should Snakes on a Plane be pulled from theaters, too?

HotAir asks if the segment would have run had the crash occurred on the Left Coast-- well, probably not. But I don't know if that's entirely due to Hollywood disregard of Middle America. It's just a fact that you "feel" disasters more the closer they hit to home.

I know, for example, I've criticized the Spanish and British responses to terrorism in ways I'd be pretty pissed off at were Spaniards and Brits to return the favor regarding 9/11. (Which, of course, they did.)

So, I don't know.

GoogleMaps Pic Of Runways: johnd01, aka Mrs. Sally McKibbish, has used GoogleMaps to show where the doomed flight was taking off from, and where the pilot thought he was taking off from.

He notes that had the plane been on the correct runway, the crash would have occurred 3/4 of the way down the strip, about the time it was supposed to take off from the ground.

Edited? Anwyn thinks the actual crash was edited from the bit.

Not Related At All... but trying desperately to keep some of those Drudge click-throughs that have stumbled here. Dog Crashes Car As Owner Teaches It How to Drive and Top Ten Excuses Offered By Dog For Crashing Car.

This is more serious, but pretty good: Why liberals are so succeptible to 9/11 conspiracy theories.
