    hello mr a and welcome back! i’m glad for this link you just posted. back in january there were news about ms ong and what a remarkable witness she was to the tragedy that befell her, the passengers in her care and the rest of the crew. interesting that at the same time a chilling second-by-second account of the columbia shuttle’s final minutes was also hitting the shelves.
