As I compose this column, there has been no news about the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 that went missing on Saturday, March 8. Searches are continuing in the Indian Ocean, numerous miles from the Australian coastline. Families are frustrated with grief and disbelief. 26 countries are included in the search that now covers millions of square miles.
Possibly by the time of printing of this column, some kind of explanation will have been determined.
Of course, most of us have been baffled by this mystery. Some ask how their cellphones disclose their actual location in Norwood, MA, but there is no means of finding the wreckage of this Boeing 777. Others ask why there is no tracking device for this immense jet other than its elusive black box.
