Hero of the Week - Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III

Jaw’s still dropped a day later.

L.A. drivers can’t drive a car in the rain and this guy lands an Airbus A320 on The Hudson River.

Great name and mustache to boot though the captain’s perfect landing could be considered a crushing blow to “high” flying fans everywhere as now we’ve got to put down the pills and pay attention to the goofy stewardess/mime troop of at the beginning of the flight so we can learn how to turn our seat backs into lifeboats and our armrests into balloon animals to calm crying children.

I would’ve been the idiot who passed out in the back and died with M83 jacked up on my Ipod and a copy of Wired in my lap.
