Yup, this is what it’s come to in our age of over-sharing, over-exposure, sex tapes that get you on Sean Vannity’s FOX News show (in several cases), and the annoying excess of reality TV shows galore.
Captain Chesley Sullenberger was an instant hero when he landed a plane in the Hudson River and saved his passengers’ lives. He could have “retired as undefeated champion” by leaving it at that and a book deal. But he and his wife apparently see themselves as members of the “The Hills”/”Jon & Kate” generation and they’re very obviously afflicted by this bad habit known as TMI.

Is he trying to compete with Levi Johnston? Sure looks like it.
Hero Pilot Sully Enjoys “Rock Star Sex”: Sullenberger says being a hero has its perks
High-flying hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger confessed that he’s been enjoying “rock star sex” in the wake of being dubbed a national hero.
Sully, who landed a US Airways jetliner safely in New York Hudson’s River earlier this year, said in an interview for NBC’s “People of the Year” TV special set to air on Thursday that the near-tragic incident has added some sizzle to his sex life.
“He doesn’t know I’m going to say this, but I had joked the other day that … the hero sex really helps a 20-year-old marriage,” wife Laurie Sullengerger [DS: sic] said.
“Rock star sex,” Sully said.
Yeah, um, thanks for the sharing. But no thanks. That’s a “vision” that I really need to get out of my mind, stat. Please tell me there are no tapes about to be released. You don’t have to be a prude not to want to know this stuff. What’s next–their favorite positions? Some people don’t know when to shut up. And you wonder why some teenagers–including, probably now, the Sullenberger daughters–hate their parents.
I just puked in my mouth.
Me, too. My friend, Jeff Zaslow, ghost-wrote and “co-authored” Sully’s book. And, thankfully, I don’t recall this kind of Penthouse Forum stuff being in the tome.
Thank G-d* there were no NBC News or people of record without an edit button when Paul Revere and George Washington were around. Yes, thank G-d there were no topless Obama-esque photos of Abraham Lincoln or vidoes of Mary Todd telling us that amid the craziness that Emancipation Proclamation emancipated their sex life.
Oh, how we’ve declined. TMI and TLI of import. Thanks to our friend, Brett Winterble of Covert Radio Show for this most “auspicious” tip.
