That was due to both pilot error and poor facilities (non-precision approach and approach lighting) at the Birmingham airport....more an airport problem than a UPS one...

Ban motor vehicles! More people are killed by them than guns. You could use the exhaust emissions for fertilizer.

Those are typically well-paid jobs. People don't just want to get up and leave. It's kind of like "Why should I leave when it's the others that are idiots and should leave? Well, I'll just help them leave by serving them a few bullets..."

I always state this to people regarding airplanes and crashes that I bet 90% is human error or lack of maintenance. Not a failure in the machine itself if maintained properly.

This. My wife is a hiring (and firing) district manager for her company. Unfortunately, this thought crosses my mind every single day. Some people lose their mind when they are let go. She has had to call the police on several fired employees to safely escort them off the property.

Correct...Actually about 2,700 teenagers alone die from car crashes every year in the US. Thats over 50/week. How come this never makes the headlines? http://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/teen_drivers/teendrivers_factsheet.html

This is apparently what happened. The shooter was supposedly fired just yesterday. I don't get it. Yeah, losing your source of income can be devastating, but why go out like this? At least the shooter took himself out.

Because all this is the fault of our society you can declare yourself a victim. Just choose one of the government approved reasons and you will receive the support you deserve. After all, it's not your fault. People like me know that it's our duty to take care of you. You don't even have to be a citizen. It's an equal opportunity gravy train. You don't even need a ticket to ride. And we won't even say anything bad about you because it's not nice.
