He’ll never get an Obama cabinet post at this rate

Sully’s just too honest.

Chesley Sullenberger has a problem. He borrowed a book from the Danville Library – and it’s overdue. To complicate matters, the book was an interlibrary loan from Fresno State.

Sullenberger contacted librarians and asked for an extension on the loan and a waiver on the overdue fine. The reason? The book is in the cargo hold of the US Airways plane that made an emergency landing last month in New York’s Hudson River. Sullenberger is the pilot who made that landing. No one was seriously injured.

Fresno State library officials were impressed with Sullenberger’s sense of responsibility… and waived all fines and fees, even the one for losing the book. The library’s going one step further: when the replacement book goes up on the shelf, it will have a special template in front, dedicating it to Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.

Oh, by the way. The topic of that book? Professional ethics.

  1. A nice and inspiring story. Too bad it is besmirched by the hate-Obama title. Shouldn’t the right be able to come up with more reasoned arguments that the adolescent nonsense that this title exemplifies?

  2. That’s not a “hate Obama” title. It was a topical dig at the time this article was first posted. You may recall that there was quite a string of candidates who, uh, “forgot” to pay their taxes.

    Feel free to poke around the blog. You’ll find humor, reasoned arguments, and sometimes both in the same article.

    Thanks for stopping by!
