Danville Pilot Party on Saturday

If you want to embarrass with praise Chesley Sullenberger, the Danville resident and pilot who successfully ditched a US Airways plane into the Hudson River, you’ll get your chance on Saturday. Danville plans to throw him a modest party at 1 p.m. on the Town Green. With a marching band and everything! We’re happy to see that he won’t make a speech or take excessive credit for his remarkable cool under pressure; the guy really seems like a solid mensch.
