Of Aviation Crashes and Software Bugs - Gustavo Duarte

I just found out that Stephen Colbert’s father and two brothers died in a plane crash on September 11, 1974. Maybe everybody knows this - I’m not sure because I haven’t watched TV in years, so I live in a sort of alternate reality. My only exposure to TV are YouTube clips of Jon Stewart, Colbert, and lots of Dora The Explorer (Jon Stewart is my favorite but Swiper The Fox is a close second, don’t tell my kids though). Now, I may not have TV to keep me informed, but I do read aircraft accident reports and transcripts from cockpit voice recorders. That doesn’t help in small talk with the neighbors, but you read some amazing stuff.
