Cory Lidle Plane Crash

I could not believe this happened. How can a plane, any size, fly around the New York City skyline? Especially after 9/11.

I thought for sure that the initial reports were wrong, but it actually happened. The plane Cory Lidle (New York Yankees pitcher) was flying was a Cirrus SR20, a small 4 seater equipped with a parachute for the plane itself.

I am sorry for the loss of life, but, someone needs to do something to stop this from ever happening again. There is no excuse to have a plane crash into a building in NYC. According to some reports there are no restrictions at all on small aircraft flying in and around the New York skyline, and that is just plain stupid.
