So the official story is Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 fell into the ocean.
“We have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived,” Malaysian Airlines told family members of the missing passengers.
A reasonable assumption to be sure, though not one surviving family members 1 are wont to accept. Find us some wreckage, they say; the ocean is only ten to twenty thousand feet deep in that area, show us proof of their oblivion.
We also think the Malaysian Airlines announcement premature.
We don’t want to see bodies or the black box, but we’d sure like to know if anyone’s asked J. J. Abrams where the plane might be.
Answers, damnit. Give us answers!
- One of the English language’s odder constructs: “He is survived by his wife of 20 years…”, as though the wife was lucky to escape the clutches of the landslide that did him in (she was shopping across town that day.) Same for the relative’s of MH370’s passengers – what damned good luck they all managed to survive the plane’s disappearance. ↩
- We mentioned this yesterday to one of the office’s Xristian Xrazys and thought his head might explode. ↩
- It’s not as though the Holy See is overly busy investigating their endless child molestation/rape problem. ↩
