Wow. Just wow.

The first headline reads: "All Safe After Jetliner Crashes" Amazing - simply amazing. Not only did the pilots manage to make a split second decision after they lost both engines, but they made a decision that saved the lives of all 150 people on board, plus countless numbers on the ground. They landed on the Hudson River.

Don't know who you are, but KUDOS to you for doing your job, and doing it well. You are a fine, fine pilot and should know that you are definitely appreciated.

And to all of those passengers who didn't panic - even when you were told to prepare for a "hard landing" - way to go. You are a smart bunch that contributed highly to your own well being here.

If you haven't already seen it on TV, take a minute to look at the pictures and you will be as amazed by this as I am. I'm not calling it a miracle, but I sure will heap praises upon everyone involved for the good jobs they did - from the crew to the passengers to the passing boats who helped to the FDNY.
