At the end of the day, it's just speculation.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/07/mh370-malaysia-airlines/590653/

You should put a warning up there as to length of article.

Most of The Atlantic articles are long.

At the end of the day, it's just speculation.

But this sums it up perfectly:

"The mystery surrounding MH370 has been a focus of continued investigation and a source of sometimes feverish public speculation. The loss devastated families on four continents. The idea that a sophisticated machine, with its modern instruments and redundant communications, could simply vanish seems beyond the realm of possibility. It is hard to permanently delete an email, and living off the grid is nearly unachievable even when the attempt is deliberate. A Boeing 777 is meant to be electronically accessible at all times. The disappearance of the airplane has provoked a host of theories. Many are preposterous. All are given life by the fact that, in this age, commercial airplanes donít just vanish."
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Well I think that + this:

The important answers probably donít lie in the ocean but on land, in Malaysia. That should be the focus moving forward. Unless they are as incompetent as the air force and air traffic control, the Malaysian police know more than they have dared to say. The riddle may not be deep. That is the frustration here. The answers may well lie close at hand, but they are more difficult to retrieve than any black box.

If only dems would have this kind of diversity, we might have a more civilized political environment. Unfortunately, it seems like on the D side it's some kind of totalitarian thought police.

Didn't know there was a D and R side on the SCOTUS.

D appointees and R appointees. Though my comment wasn't about the SCOTUS, rather about the diversity of opinions within the party. (There's plenty to criticize the Rs about, but on the topic of diversity of opinions, they definitely come way ahead of the Ds).
