Gimme that old time religion

More substance on religion coming soon, but in case you missed this from Sicily:

Prosecutors say that after both the plane's engines cut out, the pilot succumbed to panic, praying out loud instead of following emergency procedures and then opting to crash-land in the Mediterranean instead of trying to reach the nearest airport.

There's a train of errors in this, including a faulty fuel gauge, but thank goodness Sully didn't opt for Our Fathers over quick thinking and smart action. I imagine the sixteen people who died in this plane accident would like a do-over on picking a pilot as well.
