Miracle on the Hudson: One Year Later

I don't really have anything insightful to say about this - and certainly nothing that has not already been written - but I just thought it was worth noting that today is the one-year anniversary of the so-called "Miracle on the Hudson." After striking a flock of geese mid-flight, and losing thrust in both engines while flying over New York City, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger safely landed a jet airliner on the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 people on board.

Read that last sentence again. If you don't think it is a miracle, you just suck.*

The hero we needed.

* Statement does not apply to LJT, who does not suck, but will somehow find something bad to say about Sully, miracles, and unicorns.

Man, it sucks to fly coach even when your plane makes a miraculous landing in a river after surviving an all-out avian assault.

I would have paid a ton of money to see that from the shore.

I would also pay like a regular movie ticket admission price to watch a high quality video of the affair.
