Plane Vaporizes Over The Ocean

Another plane went off the radar "due to lightning" today. That makes, what, a half a dozen since September that have done that?
It's not terrorism. Well, I guess if they never find the pieces you can say it's lightning, flying saucers or an attack by the Teletubbies, no one's ever gonna call you a liar. But they do know for sure, like in all the other cases, that it's not terrorism. "We can rule that out" said yet another official who must remain anonymous due to an ongoing investigation. Just like every other quote in an Associated Press story. See if you can FIND an Associated Press story that doesn't have "quotes" from anonymous sources. They're not really anonymous. Just look at the top where the name of the writer of the article is. That's the source of the anonymous quote.

Eye agree with the observation on 'anonymous quotes'.
People are so stupid sometimes, maybe most of the time...maybe?
