The pilot, Cory Lidle, the Yankee pitcher who pitched the last game and unbeknownst to him, his last game, is now dead.

I work in downtown Manhattan on the 40th floor of the Federal Building. We can see the smoke and fire billowing out of the building that the plane that Corey was flying. People here started to panic (think 9/11 all over again).

I heard that there were 4 confirmed deaths: Corey, the pilot instructor, and 2 folks from the apartment.

My question is this: Why would any pilot instructor have a student fly in weather like this?

This situation is totally @#$^ up.
