God was looking out for these guys.

Yesterday an airplane crash landed on the Hudson river in New York. Luckily, all the passengers made it safe and sound. The pilot,Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III, a Purdue University grad with a Masters in Psychology and an owner of a security consulting firm, has been praised for his skills and ability.

When I used to travel a lot, I would always choose exit rows. Even though I carefully studied the procedure to exit the plane, I always thought that if something happened, I would probably die and there would not be a chance to escape the plane alive. But, apparently, it is sometimes possible to survive.

After 9/11, the Autonomous Republic of New York is truly ready for anything.

Since everybody's okay, it is sort of fun to imagine what must have been going on at the White House as soon-to-be-ex-president Bush was practicing his "I kept everybody safe" speech and a plane crashed in New York.
