Incidentally, I agree with EGBauer ... I think these memorials for people in the news are unfair to the many who die each day unmourned just because they were not in the public eye ...
In any case, I think the snippet below is as interesting now as it was a year ago:
Spooky: A columnist in Toronto's Globe and Mail noted connections between the fallen space shuttle and the seven Canadian teenagers from Calgary's Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School, known as STS, who died in a British Columbia avalanche Saturday. "[B]y some weird coincidence, the call letters on the side of Columbia were STS 107. Even if one doesn't believe in numerology or mysticism, there is no escaping the connection of STS, while the number shows an eerie parallel to the students who were on the trip: 17 students, 10 survived and seven did not.
