Monday March 1, 2010 | Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger

In one fateful day, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger went from a veteran airline pilot and devoted husband and father to a national hero. His emergency landing of USAirways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River became the stuff of legend but Captain Sullenberger credits the heroic act to a love of learning, attention to detail and devotion to the passengers in his charge. Captain Sullenberger is flying to Charlotte to sign his book, Highest Duty, but first he joins guest host Chris Clackum to talk about his life, his passion for flying and his remarkable career.

  1. I am curious to know what Sully thinks when someone calls him a hero. Perhaps we need another word for people like Sully who are in a career situation of their own choice but who perform their duties so admirably that we want all others to strive for that peak performance. Until we find that word I am happy to call Sully a hero!

  2. I am enchanted with the 1/2-inch square graphics on this page, on the right under the “Recent Comments” subhead. and on the one comment (so far). They are vaguely like quilt art. They are inventive symmetries.

    An artist friend, John Alcorn (deceased) and his artist son Stephen both occasionally use such symmetrical shapes as borders or to hold type etc.

    From whence came they? Can I/how can I get a copy of them, perhaps larger or digitally or something? Thank you.

  3. Thanks for the comment, Larry. Those little avatars are generated by WordPress (the host site for this page) for non-WordPress users. It automatically generates a unique image for each unique IP address. They are very interesting, but unfortunately that’s all I know! Sorry I can’t help more.
