Turning straw into gold

There aren't enough heroes in the world.
But when US Airways faced the ignominy of having one of its planes end up in the Hudson River yesterday, it also had the great good fortune of having Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger at the controls.
In a media-drenched city that's gun shy about any kind of airliner weirdness after 9-11 and the Brooklyn crash in 2002, I expect Mr. Sullenberger's life is about to take a remarkable turn for the more interesting.
