The pilot everybody has now heard of, Chesley Sullenberger, was on KPCC's Airtalk with Larry Mantle in the 10:30 segment. He's fairly alarmist about the declining experience level of airline pilots as salaries dive: he says his pay has gone down 40% and he has lost his pension as the airlines cut costs. His first officer on the flight that landed in the Hudson River has lost 60% of his salary, Sully says. Sullenberger began with PSA based in San Diego in 1980. His book is “Highest Duty: My Search For What Really Matters.”
And from Patt Morrison: The afternoon host on KPCC blogs in her L.A. Times hat [just checking to see if anyone's paying attention-.ed.] about Maria Shriver's latest illegal faux pas, "It's a shame that paparazzi follow her hither and yon, but one definition of morality is doing the right thing even when no one's looking, isn't it?"
