Bag’s Take-Away:
It’s just interesting that what seems to be quite a number of apparent psychotic breaks are making the news these days: The American Airlines flight attendant, this JetBlue pilot, Afghanistan massacre soldier Sgt. Bales, Kony 2012 filmmaker Jason Russell, to name a few.
I’m not saying there’s something in the water, but I am wondering about the degree of individual stress being metabolized in our society.

Passengers said the pilot screamed that Iraq or Afghanistan had planted a bomb on the flight, was locked out of the cockpit, and then tackled and restrained by passengers. The pilot who subsequently took command of the aircraft elected to land in Amarillo at about 10 a.m., JetBlue Airways said in a statement.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

Looking at a lot of the photos of the Concordia disaster, what’s striking are how amazingly Escher-esque the images are.


(photo: Gregorio Borgia/AP caption: Italian navy divers approach the cruise ship Costa Concordia Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2012, after it ran aground on the tiny Tuscan island of Giglio, Italy, on Friday evening. Italian naval divers on Tuesday exploded holes in the hull of a cruise ship that grounded near a Tuscan island to speed the search for 29 missing passengers and crew while the seas remain relatively calm. The search intensified as prosecutors prepared to question the captain, who is accused of causing the wreck that left at least six dead by making a maneuver that the Italian cruise operator said was “unapproved and unauthorized.)
