Hope n' Change isn't really interested in politics today. The mystery of what happened to Malaysia Flight 370 and its 239 passengers is all we can really think of.
It was bad enough to think that something catastrophic but accidental happened in mid-air. But as of this writing, it now sounds like someone in the cockpit shut off the transponders, turned the jet in a new direction, and then plunged it to an altitude at which it could fly to an unknown fate without being detected on radar.
If true, this is evil of a truly breathtaking nature.
Speculation on our part would be pointless until more and better information comes in. For now, we're keeping the passengers, crew, and their families in our thoughts. And additionally hoping that if this has been an act of terrorism, that there will be swift and dramatic consequences.
