Union YES !

Now, why didn’t I think of that ?

This Miracle Brought to You by America’s Unions

”They're detailing the heroism of all involved, starting with the pilot and including cabin crew, ferry crews, and first responders. What they're not telling you is that just about every single one of these heros is a union member. “

And I loved this little dig about Reagan:

”They're represented by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. Someday, they'll rename National Airport for the work these men and women do to keep us safe in the air. “

I was going to write something along the lines of being grateful for all those government regulations requiring constant life-saving drills, taxes paying for all those fancy (and expensive) pieces of public-safety equipment and even the safety investigators that got so many “lessons learned” incorporated into concrete measures aimed at improving the survivability of accidents.

But I like this angle better.
