In a change of pace, a plane crashed, leaving 155 people unharmed. The actions of the pilot and crew allowed a splash into the Hudson River and everyone to make it out, without so much as hypothermia from the winter-cold waters. (Jeez, there wasn't even ICE on the river where they landed!)
To quote the article's key witness: "Not that I'm an expert in plane crashes, it being my first one, but it went fairly smoothly."
Suck it up, Aviarians, that's the cheeriest news you're going to get in 2009.
