NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- What is most amazing about the recent Southwest Airlines (LUV) accident at LaGuardia airport in New York, and the earlier Asiana accident in San Francisco, is how rare such incidents are and how few casualties they cause in 2013.Any airplane accident is a big deal, and now that the ubiquity of cell-phone cameras means we get to see them, or (as in the case of Southwest's LaGuardia accident) ride along inside them, they're an even bigger deal.
