Amelia Earhart would have been 115 years old this week. She disappeared in July 1937 near Howland Island, just north of the equator in the Pacific Ocean.  A $2.2m expedition to find the wreckage failed to find proof of Ms Earhart’s fate via sonar and video.  I spoke with some of her family members in Atchison and they said they are preparing for the possibility she might have died.

    My grandfather would have turned 117 this July. I dearly miss him, but in a certain sense I’m glad he’s gone so he doesn’t have to look at what little’s left of the America he grew up in. And I’m quite sure Amelia Earhart would be equally disturbed by the present scene.
