    In 2000 a prominent candidate for the US Senate died in a plane crash.
    In 2002 a prominent candidate for the US Senate died in a plance crash.
    Any bets on a prominent democratic candidate having a fatal plane crash in 2004?

    Paranoia strikes deep

    Into your life it will creep

    It starts when you're always afraid

    You step out of line, the man come and take you away

    Nice. It seems that very few people remember the Buffalo Springfield these days.

    My only full-time political experience was long ago, writing the advertising for an incumbent liberal Democrat congressman . . . who died in a plane crash a week before the election.

    It it wasn't for Senator Heinz (R) dying in a plane crash, we could work up a better Republican conspiracy story. Or maybe Heinz was too moderate. And there is, according to the former Arizona Republic investigative news team (Seper and Robinson), good evidence that it was Republicans who engineered the plane crash that killed Audie Murphy when Murphy was threatening to reveal his role in, well, in a matter that would have accelerated Nixon's resignation.

    The rate at which politicians die in plane crashes is astounding.

    Unless, of course, you consider how often politicians fly (particularly Senate candidates, since they have to cover an entire state.) And, moreover, how often they fly in private planes.

    Don't let that stop you. Vermont getting too small? Does anyone actually fly between cities in Vermont?

    Around here, the airport is so far out of town that it would be half way through Vermont.
