BREAKING: Plane Crash In Hudson River Off NYC

(Earlier picture, all the passengers haver been rescued from the plane)

Everyone is reported to be safe after a plane leaving LaGuardia apparently hit a flock of birds.

Ironically, I am sitting in a hotel room on the West Side about 5 blocks from where it happened. I can't see anything but stand by for more.

Here's a story on it
. About 150 souls on board.

As someone who is a private pilot (aka I can fly a bug smasher), I gotta say, damn fine job by the flight crew. Total engine failure, low and heavy and over the most populous city in the country? Yeah, there are some free beers in their future.

Amazing job also by the numerous boat captains who didn't wait for orders or just call 911, they started up, headed over and pulled people on board. And of course the first responders.

So um, pay attention to safety briefing next time kids.

More: Some idiot reporter just asked Bloomberg, "what can you do to assure people this will not again". It always amazes me that people that dog shit stupid can find their way out of bed in the morning let alone actually con some organization out of a paycheck.

Now That Everyone is A-OK... [ace]: It's time to call this what it is -- the first of Obama's many coming miracles.

Some will say "But he wasn't in NYC."

He's everywhere. Anywhere a heart open to love and hope exists, so too does Obama.
