According to the early reports, nobody was injured in the crash Monday of a U.S. Black Hawk helicopter in Cheolwon county, South Korea, which sits on the border with North Korea. And the copter stayed in the South, apparently. But what with the recent unpleasantness, this is just no time to have military hardware crashing along the border.
