    This dude should receive every kind of possible award for this brave act.
    There's no telling what kind of crisis he has prevented by acting so quickly.

    Obama could give him a Medal of Freedom.

    So are bombs. But, if you're looking at going to prison for the rest of your life you'll prbably try anything.

    In these times there is a wonder that the passengers don't become like sharks in a freeding frenzy. Up 30,000 feet up in the air there is no playing around. I hate heights and even worst I hate falling from heights.

    Am sorry if this guy has any mental problems but in a situation like that I am going to hurt him seriously.
    I think this sentiment is going to be more and more prevalent. People are tired of the **** and are going to start acting, instead of sitting idly by.

    Good for people who are not afraid to stand up and do something!

    Brilliant plan.

    Re: Terror hero: I didn't hesitate

    Isn't it refreshing when a hero stands up and says, "I'm a hero!" instead of the usual "Oh, I didn't do what anything anybody else wouldn't have done."

    I don't think air passengers will sit by idle anymore after 9/11. It's about time we stood up to these vermin and squash them like a roach.

    Hope I'm never in that situation but if I am I don't intend to sit on my hands either.

    I hope this guy gets rewarded well for his bravery.

    There's a lot of the New York Parrot Cage Liner calling him a hero, but, doesn't look like he grabbed the title for himself.

    After 9/11, passengers are going to automatically assume that the hi-jackers are on a suicide mission and are going to fight back.

    Believe it, or not, there's a brigh side. The 9/11 crew ****ed it up for your garden variety, political statement, release my oppressed brothers from your political prison hi-jacker, forever.

    We talking about the same guy? The one I saw interviewed on TV wasn't modest about being a hero at all. Had a bandage on his left hand? If we are talking about the same dude, looks like he eventually took the "aw-shucks" approach and is trying the modest thing out after all.
