RE: Landing a plane on the Hudson River and then searching the cabin TWICE to make sure that all passengers and crew had escaped safely before you.
(Will somebody please pass the tissues?)
Seriously, folks. In the midst of everything else I was futzing with, yesterday's news stopped me in my tracks to thank God for this man, the citizens of New York who ran to help, the rescue personnel, The United State Air Force, Purdue University, and whatever angels there were up there who allowed 150+ people to survive.
