Sometimes a hero needs a hero

Library Waives Hudson River Pilot's Library Fees

Seems Capt. Sully had a library book in the cargo hold when he ditched the plane in the Hudson. He called the library to ask for an extension and waiver of overdue fees.

The library waived it all, and will put a dedication to him in the replacement book.

It gets better. The topic of the book? Professional ethics.

Oh, while we're off-topic: World's Coolest Dad (video)

Thanks for sharing this. That's a great story.

On the other hand ... It's a good thing it was his book on ethics, not, say, "Fluffy the Rabbit."

My father used to get notices from the Air Force Base library about overdue books, and they tended to be kids' books for my younger brother. It was a blast.
