Chesley Sullenberger III - a real hero

Not much else to say about the incredible Hudson River landing of U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger II on Friday.

Also slightly strange that I had put up an item about the weather on Wednesday that referred to, among other things, Danville, California (which is the home of one of my favorite cousins) and is interestingly the home of pilot Sullenberger.

But while everyone is lauding the pilot - and put me at the top of the list - it won't keep some Philadelphia lawyer (and some New York and New Jersey ones as well) from filing a negligent lawsuit on Monday or sometime next week against the airlines. Wait and see.

Because in America, there always has to be a pot at the end of the tragedy (or near tragedy) rainbow even when the fault lies with a flock of geese.
