Businessman/Philanthropist by Day, Action Hero by Night
From the Washington Post on Monday, January 25th:
This was one of the headlines in the Metro section:
Man trying to open plane’s doors is subdued by fellow passengers : Heroics end with none hurt on United flight from Dulles; psychiatric exam pending …
Further into the story the first passenger who responded in attempting to restrain the man trying to force entry into the cockpit, was identified as Earl Stafford, who organized the People’s Inaugural celebration in Washington last year, was headed to a convention of television executives to promote a public-service announcement that his charitable foundation produced last week, encouraging voluntarism. Three other passengers aided in restraining the man, Sergei Sandou, Thomas A. Hart, and Barry Eynon, and thanks to all who jumped in and took action.
