Yes, there are lots of stupid people out there. At least most people who read The Onion know to not take their articles seriously.

There's been good coverage of a couple good air disasters in The Onion over the years, this one's my favorite:

http://www.theonion.com/content/node/28494

Like the FAA says:

"There is special providence in the fall of the sparrow," Whelan said. "If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all. Since no man of aught he leaves knows, what isn't to leave betimes? Let be."

Or in other words, sh*t happens.
