Former Alaskan Sen. Ted Stevens — who served in that position longer than any other person ever and still found time somehow to invent "The Intertubes" — has very possibly just been involved in a plane crash. Involved in the worst possible way…
A plane believed to be carrying eight people, including former Senator Ted Stevens, crashed in southwest Alaska and rescue crews were trying to reach the wreckage early Tuesday, authorities said…
A United States government official told The Associated Press that Alaska authorities have been told the former longtime Republican senator is among several passengers on the plane. The official, who spoke on grounds of anonymity, said Mr. Stevens's condition was unknown.
I think I speak for all Americans when, in response to potentially sad news, I say: No!!!
Stevens was one of two survivors in a 1978 plane crash at Anchorage International Airport that killed his wife, Ann, and several others.
It's like a really slow, drawn out sequel to Final Destination. Which is to say, it's like a sequel to Final Destination.
By the way, the other survivor of that '78 plane crash… Buddy Holly.
