No one died flying on domestic commercial airliners in 2002, according to CNN. This also occurred in 1993 and 1998, although there were 525 deaths in 2001, including passengers on the four 9/11 planes and everyone on board American flight 587 two months later. Sorry to those looking for "all rants all the time:" this is good news, and I can't find any good anti-Bush slant in it. (In fact, the Bushies might be due for some mild praise here, but I ain't goin' there.) I just thought it was interesting, and it is one of those stories featured prominently on CNN's web site that you can miss completely reading the NY Times (like the explosions in Cheney's basement).
