It's Not Just 9/11
In the book store earlier today I was paging through Deroy Murdock's American Spectator cover story on Rudy (not online).
He opens with a story of a passenger who was on a flight with Rudy in May of 2005, when, at 38,000 feet, one of the cabin doors cracked open and the cabin started to depressurize. The pilot was forced to quickly descend to 9,000 feet. Understandably, there was a good deal of panic and concern on the plane.
What did Rudy do? He put on his oxygen mask... and resumed reading a Shakespeare book he was about to give his daughter.
Nerves of steel.
