Oh, Cry Me a Frozen River, Lady

How about just being a grownup? US Air already did more than it needed to.

Perhaps Tess Sosa should consider this in lieu of therapy:

Write the airline a letter that starts, “Thanks to you, my family is alive. I am so grateful.”



  1. Hello Rick,
    This woman Tess Sosa who was a passenger on US Airways Flight 1549’s emergency landing in New York City’s Hudson River now wants compensation for her troubles. Rick, this is whats wrong with america. I would be happy just being alive. Only in America could such a display of heroism and professional conduct be tarnished by people not sensible enough to know when to be happy.I also blame cnn for even giving her a microphone….

  2. I agree, the airline is not at fault and should be commended for EVERYTHING. She should file a law suite against God and Birds

  3. Wait, the airline gave each passenger 5,000 so this woman and her family got 20,000. Isn’t that therapy money?

  4. I agree with the original poster: in what way is US Air responsible for what happened? Geese downed the plane, and Tess Sosa and her family are incredibly lucky that the pilot was skilled enough to save all on board. What a miserably entitled attitude Sosa displays: she can’t shake down God or fate, but hey, US Air has deep pockets–go for them! Forget thanking them for all they’ve already done–Sosa whines, “I expect my family to be taken care of in the very best way.” How about this: YOU take care of them! Seek support in your community, your church if you have one, and–perhaps Sosa’s problem?–your own inner strength.

  5. Pull your head out of your butt, grow up and be an adult.

    There. I just provided you a free therapy session that should set you straight.

    Now, get up, get out and get on with your life!

  6. I agree with others that this is nothing short of absurd.

    Not sure what more an airline could do for you in such an event than employ a masterful pilot who saved your life in what should have been a fatal double-bird-strike-causing plane crash.

    I would hope I would simply be grateful to be alive, and with a new leise on life, reorganize my priorities and concentrate on what really matters.

    Very sad to see someone acting so entitled and self absorbed without the ability to see the miracle of that day.

  7. I somehow figured there would be one crazy idiot trying to collect money. She should be on her knees thanking God every day that she was on a plane with a pilot so skilled. There is no way this wonderful outcome would have happened without God’s hand and the skill of this great American. Talk about seeing the glass help empty. Get a life, count your blessings, try suing the birds or the sky but not a wonderful airline who has already given you much more than you deserve. You should be paying them!!!!
