The ultimate water hazard

     This afternoon, a USAirways flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, NC, allegedly encountered a flock of birds just after takeoff, and the pilots were forced to make an emergency landing - in the Hudson River.  I heard an interview with one of the passengers a few minutes ago.  I am writing this shortly before 5 p.m. EST. and it appears all passengers survived the water landing.   
    The passenger interviewed was asked his name and what he was doing on the plane.
    "My friends and I were going on a golf trip," he said.  Certainly, it was a golf trip he and his friends will never forget.
