OK, this is my last comment. I think I know the cause of the crash:
"Smithers take us down, who's flying this thing anyway?"
"Uh, you are Sir."

I hate it when talented people die young, but I hate it worse when untalented people linger on for years and years, refusing to give up the ghost.

But in this case, when a no-talent-hack goes early, I'm unbothered.

"Smithers, did my nuclear power plant kill those ducks?"
"Most likely, sir"
*With Tear in Eye*"Excellent.."

Did I post on this yet? I can't find my post from yesterday; it must've been stupid. Anyway, whatever happened to Aaliyah, I still think the greatest loss to the music world was Bradley Nowell of Sublime. Yes, even worse than Kurt Cobain, and I'm sure some people will back me up on this.

OK, this is my last one - seriously.

Disrespect the dead?

The dead don't care.

I'm bummed at the loss of a really hot chick, but that's as far as that goes.

If you get pissed off about people making jokes about dead people, then by all means... DON'T DIE.

Sublime??? That is a weeeeeeeaaak group... I feel worse about the dude from Hanoi Rocks. (if you say 'who?', you have made my point)

Wh.??.........ha ha. Almost got you Stebain. Ha ha, I'm such a joker. God, I kill me.

All that needs to be said:

The Cessna 402B generally can carry a maximum of eight passengers and a pilot, meaning that Aaliyah's plane could have been filled to capacity with people, he said.

The New York Post reported today that the pilot, Luis Morales, had gotten into a heated argument with members of the singer's entourage, arguing that the plane was dangerously overloaded.

The newspaper, quoting charter pilot Lewis Key, who witnessed the argument, said Morales gave in and took off.

"He tried to convince them the plane was overloaded, but they insisted they had chartered the plane and they had to be in Miami Saturday night," Key told the Post.

I guess maybe the plane WAS overloaded... mmmmkay...
