Our office is perched a few blocks from the Hudson, but the news story of the day was just out of sight…another building obscured the view of US  Airways flight 1549 from view. I’ve been looking at the pictures all afternoon, of course, while listening to TV and radio reports. So far, this is the image that’s sticking with me. Why? Because in a news conference after the event New York Governor David Patteron came up with the headline that you’ll be seeing tomorrow: The Miracle off 47th Street. And to me nothing says miracle like people appearing to stand on water. Of course, these passengers were standing on the submerged wings of the aircraft waiting for rescue. But in this case appearances tell the story best.–David Schonauer
