Murkle on the Hudson

It's a murkle! And for once, it's not all hyperbole: it was a miracle that this accident happened to one of the few pilots with the skills, experience and temperament to safely land the plane in the middle of a river, and it was a miracle that everyone made it out of the plane safely, and that although it was one of the coldest days of the year, every passenger and crew member was plucked out of those frigid waters almost immediately. Hooray, US Airways! Hooray, Captain "Sully" Sullenberger! (It may not have made the headlines up your way, Bro #1, but Sully is a Purdue grad.)
