Character

Just a thought...

Isn't Chesley B Sullenberger III a perfect name for both a hero and a pilot?

I'm not going to have a Joe-the-Plumber problem when Mr. Sullenberger lands a book deal. He deserves it.

I would read that one. I bet he won't write it though. I think he wants to be left alone.

Catherine J Gardner said...

I'd read it too. And the mark of a true hero - not wanting attention.

Natalie L. Sin said...

Perhaps. Either way it's making me hungry!

That's the first time I'd read his name. Sounds like the name of someone who would have gone big-game hunting with Hemingway wearing a pith helmet.

Remarkable story, though...those events almost never unfold that positively, and I'm sure a lot of that had to do with him keeping his wits.

I'm envsioning a Biggles like character.

If I named one of my characters that, I'd be laughed at. It's just TOO perfect. So's the landing, for that matter. Truth is sometimes better than fiction.

It may be a sign that the US is turning around. We're on the brink of having a president who knows how to read and speak. A plane crashes into the Hudson in the middle of winter and it's no thing . . .

Cheers!

P.S. I do love that name. It screams hero.

I agree with Aaron, and I'm hoping Bobbie is right!

What a great name :D

Chesley B Sullenberger III is definitely a whole big chunk of name. I picture a glowering mountain of a man myself.
