Why I heart Sully ... reason number 3,213

There's lots of reasons to heart Sully Sullenberger, Captain of US Airway Flight 1549 .... but after reading his column in Newsweek, I've stumbled across reason 3,213: the guy is insanely humble, yet recognizes that he now belongs to the public:

"As time went by, though, I was better able to put everything in perspective and realize how this event had touched people's lives, how ready they were for good news, how much they wanted to feel hopeful again. Partly it's because this occurred as the U.S. presidency was changing hands. We've had a worldwide economic downturn, and people were confused, fearful and just so ready for good news. They wanted to feel reassured, I think, that all the things we value, all our ideals, still exist—that they're still there, even if they're not always evident."

In other words, we're in desperate need of some heroes right about now, and Sully's up to the rigors of public scrutiny and examination (unlike just about everyone else we put on a pedestal, beginning with baseball players).   It's good to see that Sully hasn't allowed his instant fame and hero worship to put a dent in his humility.  That's a class act.
