She was Mary Nichols.

Since I did a post on Martha Tabram, who may have possibly been the first victim, I felt that I owed you this post for completeness. {SMILE}

She, i.e., Martha Tabram, is NOT considered one of the definite (i.e., canonical five). But, many suspect that she may have been Jack’s first.

Given the mystique that surrounds Jack this was worth recording.

As somebody who has spent much of his life on planes, and have various Platinum and Lifetime Gold cards to prove it, I have a vested interest in aviation and airline safety (though I have, based on nothing other than a hunch, have claimed that I will never die in a plane crash).

Two things bother me about this crash.

1/ How do we ‘account’ for the unfortunate death of the 2nd, 16 year old Chinese teenager? Of course, she would not have died if not for the crash in the first place, BUT is it valid to include her death in the casualty count for this crash? Something that I think about. Of course I understand that it was an accident. The whole thing was an accident. But, in the case of this teenager, she was in two accidents one after the other. I fully appreciate that first responders, quite rightly, have to RUSH to the scene of an emergency. But, there is a fine line between haste and recklessness. I, as a parent and flier, would like to see this investigated fully — if that is objectively possible. Could this death have been averted with a bit more care? I don’t know. I just don’t think that a Fire Department, despite their very gallant efforts, should be given a carte blanche when an accident like this happens. We had a situation a couple of years ago, locally, when there was blatant recklessness by a volunteer fire department. So, that is my concern.

2/ I am amazed that I actually don’t know the answer given that I thought I was fairly au fait on these matters. What I don’t know is whether the Korean pilot can be detained in the U.S. to face charges. Not even sure whether it is possible to bring criminal charges against the pilot. Yes, of course, the civil law attorneys probably have already filed suit, as they should. But, can these two pilots be held criminally responsible. I also now realize why I don’t know the answer. Usually the pilots are not around to face the piper. My feeling is that these pilots need to stay in S.F. until we get to the bottom of this.
