Not The Best Spin

That Air France plane that crashed on its way from Rio to Paris? The authorities, meaning whomever the papers are quoting and not necessarily authoritative on anything, are quick to dismiss a terrorist bomb.

Authorities these days are quick to dismiss terrorism in any catastrophe for fear of fanning the flames of fear.

Instead, they’re trying to soothe the public by saying the plane probably just fell apart in midair.

That doesn’t exactly make me want to hop on a plane. Call me crazy, but call me a cab for my next trip across country.
