New York Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle was apparently either the pilot or a passenger on that small plane that crashed into a Upper East Side high-rise in Manhattan this morning, which had to take some doing. Does it strike anyone else as as curious that another Bronx bomber — Thurman Munson — killed himself after screwing up behind the controls of a twin engine Cessna Citation jet at Akron-Canton airport on 8.2.79? Munson was practicing takeoffs and landings, and I remember reports saying there was no question his crash was due to poor handling and ignoring the basics. But at least he didn’t clobber a building.
