That sucks. Hope the people on the ground are OK. I heard the pilot bailed out.

1. If the military crashes a jet into your house
they should have to buy you a new house and give you a jet of equal or greater value.

5. The picture looks pretty bad
I hope everyone is all right. It mystifies me, though, how readily we in this country can see something like this and be concerned or appalled, but when the teevee is bringing us live pictures of our bombs lighting up the sky over some foreign country, we cheer like the crowd at a fireworks show.

7. And the pilot wasn't a "Lt. Col. 'Bull' Meechum" ???
ala the The Great Santini.

I have friends in SD. I hope this wasn't near them.

9. This is happening
about 7 miles from my house.

Looks like several houses involved and the local news is saying the pilot ejected safely. There is a lot of fire and a lot of people were home. :(
