schoolbus fire

News Noir: Surely, you appreciate the irony of this . . .
A school bus's engine caught fire Friday morning in Boynton Beach, Fla., with 43 kids aboard. They all got out in time and moved away from the flames. Within minutes, the bus was completely incinerated, down to the skeletal frame. The kids were from the [Ed.: Sorry 'bout this] Christa McAuliffe Middle School (named for the teacher on that 1986 Challenger space shuttle mission). South Florida Sun-Sentinel

True life is stranger that fiction at times. Glad to hear all the kids got out safe. Crispy kiddies just ain't a lot of fun.

Were they on Hindenburg bus lines?

Wait! At first I felt sorry for the kids and even thought, "I bet that heartless school sent another bus to pick them up and get their asses to school" but NO! They were on their way to Universal Studios. Little bastards!

With this track record, her estate should lend their name to some explosives manufacturer. McAuliffe Explosives! Complete destruction, guaranteed!
