A helicopter carrying 18 oil workers to an off shore rig went down off the coast of Newfoundland today. So far they have only found one survivor. This tragedy reminded me of the Ocean Ranger, an off shore rig that sank on Feb 14, 1982 with 84 crew on board. There were no survivors.
Drilling for oil is a dangerous enough job on land, when you add the Atlantic Ocean in the winter time it gets even worse.
My wife and I met a lady from Newfoundland last summer who's Father died on the Ocean Ranger. Kind of brings it home.
Trading doesn't really matter.
