Agent Jan Miller Signs $3 Million Book Deal for Capt. Sully

Captain Chestey Sullenberger’s story will be published by a division of HarperCollins, thanks to the work of Dallas book agent Jan Miller. No proposal was necessary. All she had to do was send around this article by the pilot in the Feb. 23 issue of Newsweek — and, of course, ask publishers how high they wanted to fly.

    Do you delete comments that point out that the Plane Sully crash landed in the Hudson shouldn’t have been flying. The engines had compression problems. We called Evil Kenevil a hero too, like Sully he put himself in a compromising position. So, why are you deleting this?

    Furthermore, an editorial note, I saw the pilot you’re referring to. I don’t get your adjective, he seemed sort of thin and bald, not Chestey. I thought his name was Chestley, perhaps you saw something I missed.
