I just heard about this on the news! I came over to see if anyone knew about it. This is terrible!

Unforunately, these kinds of things happen at alI kinds of construction sites. I hope it doesn't make folks superstitious about booking her.

Prayers for the victims and their families.

Thanks for the info Jennifer, no, we hadn't heard that here yet, but my husband will be most upset when he does. He's been following every detail about the QM2 for months.

I just saw it on TV when we got home from a little shopping. What a pity for all concerned.

And so senseless. But, most of these things are.

I'm struggling with a new computer and when AOL finally decided to cooperate those were the headlines I saw! I couldn't believe it, I was so shocked!

My heart felt sympathies to all those familes.
