France is in mourning after three national sports personalities were among 10 people killed in a double helicopter crash during the filming of a reality TV show in northwestern Argentina. Two Olympic medal winners — the 28-year-old boxer Alexis Vastine and 25-year-old swimmer Camille Muffat — and yachtswoman Florence Arthaud, 57, lost their lives in La Rioja province on Monday. Five other French nationals and two Argentinian pilots also died.

How the heck did that happen?

If a hundred helicopters crashed a day due to pilots being drunk, or a couple of airliners a day, I bet it wouldn't take very long for something to be done about it...and yet on our highways we have about the equivalent in number of deaths; and nothing seems to be done other than the passionate defense and embrace of one's right to get drunk and kill people at random.

That is about as real as a reality show can get.
