Kudos to the pilot

Incredible landing by this guy. It is impossible to imagine how much pressure he had on him. First, he was thinking about his own life being in his hands. Then he had to think about the other 145 people on the plane. Then he was thinking about his family and friends, and the how the big disaster would affect them. Then he was thinking about what would happen to the company JetBlue if this plane crashed. But he performed perfectly and will now be a national hero. A rare great feel-good story with something for everyone. The only thing missing from making this a reality-TV dream would have been some shots of distressed passengers onboard.

The TVs were turned off, not surprisingly. And the moment of landing was the most riveting moment on television this year.
