The Sullenberger Combination
*** begin quote ***
Captain Chesley Sullenberger gave us a glimpse of what’s long been lacking in our national political leadership — the complete combination of competence, leadership and courage.
The pilot of US Airways Flight 1549 had, in multiple ways, prepared all his life to save the crew and 150 passengers on his aircraft. When the moment came to apply all that preparation, he calmly announced over the aircraft’s intercom, “Brace for impact.”
*** end quote ***
An excellent comparison to ALL the current political leadership!
Running around yelling: ‘the sky is falling’ is what comes to mind in DC!
