Timing is everything. Last year was the safest ever for airlines. There were no fatalities worldwide. Unfortunately that ended yesterday when a Russian airliner went down outside Moscow killing all 71 aboard.
I drew this cartoon on Friday with the train wreck involving a load of congressmen and a truck in mind. One truck passenger died in that mishap. So far this year there have also been fatal Amtrak wrecks in South Carolina and Washington state.
