You Are Now Free To Bounce Around The Runway
Think you had a bad weekend?
It could have been worse: You could have been coming home from Denver on Contintental.
As you've no doubt heard, a Continental jet skidded off the runway into a ravine while trying to take off Saturday.
Continental has issued an Official Statement:
"The care of our passengers, crew and family members is our highest priority and they will receive any assistance necessary," said Larry Kellner, Continental Airlines' chairman and chief executive officer. "We are deeply concerned by this accident and will do everything we can for the passengers, their families and our co-workers."

Perhaps a better statement, though, was that given by a Denver Fire Department official, who said it was a miracle everyone survived.
