Death Of A Yankee
October 12th, 2006

The reactions to the surreal death of New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and flight instructor Tyler Stanger after flying an airplane into the 42-story Belaire Building at 524 E. 72nd St, are summed up in the titles of the editorials in the Daily News – First Fear, Then Mourning and the New York Post – Fear and Sadness Again

Various bloggers, including many Yankees fans, also weighed in: Alphafemale wrote of Another Loss For the Yankees. The Journal of Ashendis offered A Tribute To Cory Lidle that featured the 34-year-old pitchers baseball stats (e.g., Innings Pitched: 1,322 and 2/3, Walks: 356, Strikeouts: 838). Logan607 entitled his blog entry simply 10/11.

And a sardonic title — Thank God George W. Bush is President — came from blogger Out of Mind, who writes Thank God for GOP-enhanced “homeland security” so that planes can’t just fly all over Manhattan and then fly right into buildings
