"I Landed In The Hudson"

From the New York Times’ article on what it felt like to be on Flight 1549:

Sheikh Ali was waiting at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport for Matt Kane, a co-worker aboard Flight 1549, and did not know why it was late.

So Mr. Ali sent an e-mail message from his BlackBerry: “Where are you?”

Mr. Kane’s five-word response told the whole story: “I landed in the Hudson.”

(One question, though: don’t they have TV in Charlotte?)
