Simulating Sully

Now I'm even more impressed,


  1. That quickly from strike to landing. The man has nerves of steel. I know very few people who could make that kind of rapid fire decision and do so well

  2. Much diluted and bastardized (for the sake of "fairness", "inclusion" and "self-esteem") - the term "Hero" isn't meant to be applied to those who do what's expected of them, nor to those who "try really hard".

    A Hero is someone who reaches deep within himself in a time of need and performs such acts for the good of others as would be considered nearly impossible for anyone - pushing his abilities far beyond their normal capacity, to achieve something truly incredible.

    Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger is such a Hero - mark him well - you may not see his like again.

    - MuscleDaddy

  3. Agreed. This country has fallen far from when I was a kid. I pray that we can pull it back from the edge, but the whining masses have done so much to undercut responsibility, courage, and patriotism that I begin to doubt and wonder if the American experiment has run its course.


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
