To Say The Least... has not been a good morning:

*The bodies of the final few miners in West Virginia have been found; the final death toll has been brought to 29. At least, according to early indications, they barely knew what hit them.

*Meanwhile in Poland, the president, his wife, and a number of top officials have all died in a plane crash in Russia amidst heavy fog. 97 have died; there were no survivors. As if that wasn't bad enough, the plane was headed to a memorial for the Katyn massacre, 70 years ago to the day, when some 22,000 Polish officers were killed by Soviet secret police. Some of those on board were relatives of victims.

The crash occured in the Katyn forest.
