And Chesley B. Sullenberger III.
Nothing's better than a good New York story, and yesterday's flawless landing in the Hudson River is one of the best I've heard in a long time. Hailed as a "Miracle on the Hudson," Mr. Sullenberger managed to safely set down the U.S. Airways jet--and all 155 people aboard--in the Hudson River after losing both his engines.
Mayor Bloomberg, get this man a key to the city--or season tickets to the Yankees and a lifetime's supply of Katz's pastrami sandwiches. That's the least you can do for the angel who saved the City That Never Sleeps from another waking nightmare from the air.
Thank you, Mr. Sullenberger, from all New Yorkers, past and current. Thank you for saving so many lives, and giving us a helluva story to tell.
