While Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the U.S. Airways pilot who is being credited with safely landing Flight 1549 into the Hudson River yesterday, hasn't spoken to the public yet (there is that NTSB investigation), the public is speaking for him! Namely, they are drafting him for federal Transportation Secretary, they are demanding Governor Paterson consider appointing him to be the next Senator from New York (even though he's from California) and they are becoming his "fans" on Facebook (so far, 15,629 fans). Even TMZ had to get in on the action, asking who'd you rather (do): Hugh Jackman or Sully. At any rate, we'll sit and continue to marvel at his—and his crew's—actions as his wife and daughters marvel at how people are calling him a hero.
