Last night I watched Katie Couric interview the pilot of the US Air plane Capt. Sullenberger. I had heard the story before, but I was moved by not only hearing him share his story but from also hearing from members of his crew. They also showed the crew reuniting with passengers on the plane. They were hugging the pilot and many were saying “thank you for not making me a widow”. This accident happened almost a month ago and America is still fascinated by the story. What the pilot did was indeed heroic but how is this story still remaining a relevant news story? The answer is simple. America is in search of some good news. This story is a feel good story with a happy ending and that is a rarity these days. When you watch the news today what you see is bad news layered on top of bad news. From job losses to athletes smoking dope, injecting steroids to pop stars beating up their girlfriends there is simply not a lot of good news out there. So now we will witness the Sullenberger express make the rounds. They have been to the Super Bowl, The Inauguration and over the next few days we will see them on Larry King, David Letterman, and anywhere else there is an open microphone. This might be overkill but why not America is depressed and for now the Sullenberger story is the medication this country needs.
