Earning his keep

NBC did a good job with its coverage of the US Air plane that crash landed in the Hudson River. Very impressive flying for a true hero: Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III
The Miracle on the Hudson could have very well been The Tragedy on the Hudson had it not been for the hero pilot known as “Sully.”
It’s popular to bash unions and yes, many pilots are well paid. But there’s a reason for that – they have the skills. And at times like this it’s easy to understand why they deserve every penny and more.
It’s also worth remembering that pretty much everyone involved in the heroics in every way was a union member.
