Okay, so I'm reading the local paper yesterday morning, and there's this blurb with the heading, "Miracle on Hudson passenger to speak". And the blurb goes, "Dave Sanderson, a passenger on the "Miracle on the Hudson" US Airways flight that made an emergency landing in the Hudson River in January 2009, will be at the Barnes and Noble in (insert local town here) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday."
And I'm reading along ......
"He'll sign copies of "Brace for Impact", a book to which he contributed his story about the crash and how his life has changed since the crash."
Still reading, and here's the killer ....
"His appearance is being sponsored by the (local town name) Airport."
What. The. F*ck.
This dude survives a terrifying PLANE CRASH into an ice-filled river, and the LOCAL AIRPORT is sponsoring a stop on his book tour?
Maybe it's just me, but maaaaaaan, I just don't get that.
Don't even get me started on how the local Alzheimer's Association holds a fund-raising "memory walk" every year. Errrrrrm, "memory walk"? For Alzheimer's? That's just f*cking cruel.
What are these people thinking?
