On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.

SPORTS CORNER

The Cardinals fell to the Mets 3-2 in Grapefruit League play. St. Louis mustered little offense except for the third inning when Jason Heyward notched an RBI triple and Matt Holliday added a sac fly. Lefty Marco Gonzales calmed down after a rough start, pitching four-and-two thirds innings and allowing a run on three hits. Five spring games remain for the Cards, who host the Nationals today.
