    Bill Maher did a great interview of Captain Sullenberger the other night on Real Time, but the ending had me in abolute stitches. It is available here. Fast forward to the 7:40 mark to see the funny exchange.

    I do not want to give it away, but basically, Maher is skeptical of the necessity of turning off electronics during take offs and landings. A few seconds after the end of the exchange in the video, Maher comes back on, and jokingly says "I still think its bull*hit."

    It's actually not very hilarious up to that point. It's quite infuriating.

    Have to agree, the buffalo crew was not incompetent, they were not trained and were not provided with financial resources to make a difference in the commuting situation, he was very harsh imo.
