Most folks live mundane lives and don't really develop any extraordi9nary skills. Others have those skills and could be heroic, but never get the chance. Today, someone got the chance to use their exceptional skills and perform heroically.
Congrats to the USAir pilot who brought that plane down perfectly on the Hudson River. He/she kept the wings perfectly level and made a perfect landing without spinning out and with no power. That's an awesome and heroic performance.
Oh, and bravo AirBus for building a plane that after a hard landing on water, with all the doors and emergency exits open, is still floating an hour later.
Just watched the mayor of NYC Bloomberg at a press conference. This moron was going to run for prez? He's an idiot. . . a totally self promoting moron.
How does this dickwad get away with talking like he's talking to a bunch of school children? What a little know-it-all punk.
