I am seeing from all sides people taking Kobe's death and moreso the medias and public's response to the news and applying their own agendas.   Look, of course he is going to get more media coverage than the other people on board.  Everyone knows who Kobe is so it is the death of someone you know and have seen many times, maybe he has even given you some entertainment or even if you don't follow sports because he spoke what 4 or 5 languages lived in different countries and was a true metropolitan public figure who had interesting things to say.   Then there is also the dark side, what happened in that hotel room so many years ago?  I saw a post by the alleged victims Godfather I think and the only reason he posted was to stick up for her because of the terrible things people were saying in relation to her receiving a settlement to not testify.   The whole situation and how to approach it, just like Kobe, is very complicated.   I know I have heard the stories regarding Ellen Degeneres private life, but I have always admired her public life and think that she has an impeccable skill on approaching subjects with the imo correct perspective.   She has the amazing ability to espouse her opinions which many may not agree with in a respectful way that always seems to come around to we're all in this together.  I really liked her response to Kobe's death.

No, you're thinking of John Denver.  BTW, I know it is against the rules, but you got anymore of that stuff to send my way?  It must be pretty damn good.

What is the cost of Greater LA helicopter transportation in a helicopter large enough to carry 9?  ~US$5K/hour?  More?

How much time was he saving by avoiding LA traffic?  


Helicopter travel is a risky way to show wealth.

I am not a fan of spectator sports but this man appears to be very popular and for lots of good reasons.  Talking to a buddy last night, it would seem that Kobe has lots of admiring fans up here in Canada.  Sad.

I have been up and down numerous times in small helicopters, especially many decades ago while slashing seismic lines for oil and gas exploration in the Canadian Rocky mountains — both in SE British Columbia and SW Alberta.  Back in those days, large straight lanes were still cleared with chain saws.  These days, the jug lines are run around and in between trees, a major improvement.  Clear cut seismic lines can have negative ecological impacts.  I digress. 

Our camp helicopter pilot had an accident and ended up spending several weeks recovering in hospital.  The stats of helicopters are not pretty — it is the most dangerous form of modern transportation.  I believe helicopter use is even more dangerous in mountain ranges due to shifting winds. 

It is indeed spectacular to fly around the Rockies in a helicopter but frankly if I never get in one again I will be very, very happy.

Every helicopter pilot I've met has been cautious to a fault, and it sounds like this company is no exception. And yet they were flying VFR in fog, when other helicopters were grounded. The pressure to not "be the bad guy" and tell Kobe you can't fly must be immense.
