    07-17) 08:31 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- Asiana Airlines has dropped its threat to sue a local TV station for an on-air gaffe identifying the pilots in this month's plane crash by racially offensive names, a spokeswoman said.
    The South Korean airline had said it would sue KTVU-TV after the station mistakenly identified the four pilots aboard Asiana Flight 214 when it crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6.

    Are we sure they wanted to sue in the first place? I mean, some people read or hear what they want to and may have interpreted something in a way they shouldn't.
