There's just been another American Airlines plane (a 767) crash in NYC,
Queens this time. No word yet on deaths or whether it had anything to do
with terrorism, but the stockmarket has already dropped 2% in response and
there *are* buildings on fire.
So lift the cup of joy and take a big drink.
In spite of it all it's a beautiful world.
