Payne Stewart dead at 42.

This is tragic. All morning CNN.com was following the story of a Learjet that had gone astray. There were two F-16 fighters intercepting to check on the situation. CNN wasn't saying who it was, until the crash, but I could tell this was big.

Wayne Gretzky bought a Learjet recently, and one of my first thoughts was that it might have been his family in the jet. It would have been horribly ironic, because Gretzky really doesn't like flying.
