These people need to get a grip. The Earth has way too much water on it to get bent out of shape every time a plane smacks into some of it.

"Oh, I dropped my toothbrush in the toilet this morning and it was like the last 12 years just melted away..."

Seriously people, stop with the delicate flower routine and grow a pair.

Jimbo, couldn't agree with you more. I know former TWA employees who also said the same thing. TWA at the time had the highest standards and the best aircraft maintenance in the industry. To say "fuel vapors" took down this plane is an insult. It had been completely serviced a couple of days before incident.
