Wow.

Story here. I fly between Charlotte NC and NYC on US Air several times a year, which makes this seem especially immediate.   I hope it is true that everybody who was on the plane is safe. That makes it sort of the anti-September 11th – water instead of fire, life instead of death, which seems like a good omen as the Presidency changes hands and changes parties.

    From all of the reporting that I’ve seen, this situation turned out remarkably well, with everyone getting off of the plane safely. My partner works for the airline. I just had to pack and go drop off a bag for him, because he’s part of the investigative team for this incident. I do have to say that, after being with him for years, I’ve gotten a real appreciation for how attentive the airline is to safety issues and for how much the federal government makes sure that the airlines are dotting all of their i’s and crossing their t’s on these safety issues.

    And that show will be winning a LOT of prizes. And I will now be paying more attention to the whole ‘water landing’ warnings on the plane.

    On the symbolic note, it is somewhat an omen for the crash of DUBYA’S terms and the hope that those now in charge will save us from the icy waters we have landed in. I hope you saw Bush’s farewell speech. Kudos to the pilot and crew and ALL that helped this turn out so well! And of course, PROVIDENCE. Lemons into Lemonade, indeed! The news vidios show a lot of cohesive goodness.
