This tragedy, Amtrak train 188 derailment with 7 fatalities, hit close to home. I was booked on an Amtrak train to Philadelphia on Thursday, May 14, 2015. Suffice to say I can’t get to Philadelphia by train at the moment. But that is small potatoes and I am not going to bitch about that (though I am put out by how poorly Amtrak is handling the aftermath). The accident, however, totally rattled Deanna. It was too ‘close’ for her comfort.

I had, hours ahead of the reports, suspected speed. But even I had not thought the train would have been going at TWICE the speed limit.

They say that they have ruled out terrorism but I think they might have to revisit that.

The engineer, Brandon Bostian, was up to SOMETHING. He had to accelerate that train from a dead stop, at Philadelphia’s station, to 106 mph in less than 10 minutes. That is going some.

Was he trying to a Germanwings?

Is he another Andreas Lubitz? Trial run that went wrong?

Yes, I know he hit the emergency brakes 2 seconds ahead of the crash. That doesn’t rule out attempted suicide. He just might have lost his nerve at the last minute.

Was he on antidepressants? Will they be even allowed to ask?

I am AMAZED that he was allowed to have a cell phone on him. There is a warrant out for it (and a claim that he has already handed it in). I thought engineers were no longer permitted electronics in the cab?

If he was on the phone ‘they’ should, before any other punishment, shove that phone down his throat. 7 people killed.

I have not been following what has happened to other ‘at fault’ engineers. This guy deserves all that awaits him.

 Today, April 8, 2015, is beyond ONE FULL YEAR!

396 days.

Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

Amazing!

Doesn’t it blow your mind?

 Lufthansa Germanwings crash has put the spotlight, back again, on pilot/co-pilot suicide.

Also the Maldive Islands, my contention from the start, is again gaining attention — as it must.

Very sad. Very bizarre. People, mainly governments, know much more than they are letting on.

** As I said 3 days ago I had no doubts, right from the minute I heard about the torn up doctor’s notes, that he was on antidepressants. To me that explained, right away, one of the reasons why he would continue going to see doctors — when he did NOT like what they were telling him. He had to see doctors to renew his antidepressant prescriptions and he would have done that because many of these medications are addictive and he would not have wanted to go without them.

** Yes, Lufthansa will do its utmost to avoid blame on this, citing every conceivable law. And it is possible that they were well within their rights per the prevailing laws.

** I think there were 3 U.S. citizens on board, so U.S. lawyers will be involved and I already saw one on TV talking about it.

** Of course Lufthansa will not want to contemplate unlimited damages. 

** Yes, it will be years, many, many years before a judgement is reached — and then the fun will begin as to whether Lufthansa will be around to pay up. Sad.

** So this is the ‘delicate’ question that everybody is pussyfooting around (for obvious reasons), was co-pilot Andreas Lubitz on one or more antidepressants — and many (if not most, including Fluoxetine (Prozac), Citalopram (Celexa), Sertraline (Zoloft), Paroxetine (Paxil) and Escitalopram (Lexapro)) are now suspect as causing some degree of suicidal tendencies.

** Much is being made of all the sick notes he had, and that to me is what begs the question. Why would he get sick notes and then not use them? To get the sick notes he would have to see a doctor. RIGHT? Agreed? Why would be voluntarily go to see a doctor, that often, IF he wanted to keep his sickness secret? I will tell you. He needed to get prescription renewals for his medication. Now everything adds up. He probably had to go once a month to get a new prescription. He was given a note each time he went.

** If a doctor was prescribing him antidepressants, of course that doctor is guilty — and guilty as heck. He/she should be arrested forthwith. I do NOT buy for a second that a doctor would not know that Lubitz was a pilot. Come on. He has been a pilot for years.

** You have to be able to test for antidepressants use — with a blood or urine test. This has to become mandatory.

** In my reckoning this is likely to have been the THIRD (3rd) aircraft downing due to a pilot wanting to commit suicide in the last 18 months! Yes, I am including Malaysian Air MH370. I guess most of you never heard of the Moza LAM flight 470 that crashed in Namibia in November 2013. Same scenario, only difference was that in this case it was the co-pilot that left to go to the bathroom.
