This is what's killing me about the arguments that they are not out of balance on risk management. This is an exact example of the way to handle the AC, but is presented like we're out of step. No one stopped launching Space Shuttles. They stopped until they improved the safety of them.

It's not expected to be perfect. It's not expected to be the last improvement. No one that I read above is arguing to eliminate risk. They should make them safer than they have and the warning signs are loud and clear and someone died already. That got the shuttle grounded, but they launched many more.
