    Default it's raining a heck of a lot of important polish people... kind of literally.

    SMOLENSK, Russia - Polish President Lech Kaczynski and some of the country's highest military and civilian leaders died on Saturday when the presidential plane crashed as it came in for a landing in thick fog in western Russia, killing 97, officials said.

    Russian and Polish officials said there were no survivors on the 26-year-old Tupolev, which was taking the president, his wife and staff to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre in Katyn forest of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police.

    The crash devastated the upper echelons of Poland's political and military establishments. On board were the army chief of staff, the navy chief commander, and heads of the air and land forces. Also killed were the national bank president, deputy foreign minister, army chaplain, head of the National Security Office, deputy parliament speaker, Olympic Committee head, civil rights commissioner and at least two presidential aides and three lawmakers, the Polish foreign ministry said.

    This is an incredible tragedy.
    I cant believe they let all those people fly together, let alone on an aircraft that antique.

    Boggling.

    This is why we don't put that many high-ranking officials in the same place at the same time in America.

    So someone please tell me what happened to Randy, I'm hearing he's been finally banned?

    Polish Air Lines flight 113 was descending for a landing at an airport they had never been to before. The pilot looked out the windshield and suddenly exclaimed to the copilot, "Holy cow! Look how short the runway is! I`ve never seen one that short!"

    The copilot looked out the windshield. "Wow! you`re right! That`s incredible! Are you sure we can make it?"

    "Well we better, were almost out of fuel."

    So the captain got on the intercom and notified the passengers to put their heads between their knees and prepare for an emergency landing. Then he set the flaps to full down and slowed the plane to just over stall speed. The big jumbo jet came screaming in, on the
    ragged edge of control. The pilot`s hands were sweating, the copilot was praying. They touched down and came screeching to a halt JUST before the edge of the runway, the tires smoking.

    "WHEW! That was CLOSE!" yelled the captain."That runway was SHORT!"

    "Yeah!" said the copilot,"and WIDE too!"

    My neighborhood is home to a great many Polish natives. Just walked to the grocery and saw a lot of Polish flags with black stripes across them. I also saw a van advertising Playgirl's website.

    When you consider how many musicians go down in airplanes, its sort of amazing this doesn't happen more often to polititians.

    That's really sad. Poland is an absolutely beautiful country, amazing nightlife and all that.

    I have a feeling that Russia will blame Germany for it for fifty years until sheepishly admitting that, yeah, they did it.

    Well on the plus side, if we organize the message boards to invade Poland, I am sure we can take it now..... but we must act quick

    Isn't it really easy to invade in the first place with or without their leaders?
