Laptop use blamed for Northwest plane overshooting its destinationLaptop computers have been implicated in the bizarre case of Northwest Flight 188, which last week overshot its destination by 150 miles before turning back to the airport at which it was supposed to land, leading many to question the safety and reliability of America's commercial air traffic. Of course it turns out that what the pilots did is totally against the rules and Northwest says they will soon be terminated for the transgression pending the outcome of an investigation.

Idiots should be charged with multiple counts of kidnapping. I'm glad they had extra fuel onboard.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I think they are trying to cover their collective a$$es. I think they were doing something else and decided to stick to a "story".
