Thu Aug 10, 2006 6:03 am

Haven't seen anything on the national news but thought this was very intresting. I was staying up late and went out to get the news paper and on the front page this is what i saw. Didnt expect to see anything like this.
Here's the link to the local news press.

Maybe his wife was on that plane and she forgot her makeup kit or something.
