    Glad that everyone was safe.

    From what I've been watching, the passenger interviews from the last few minutes seem to be following the "find the goofiest guy" stipulation of news coverage pretty closely - though to be fair I suppose any of us would be pretty hard pressed for eloquence after such a close call.
