Attention, desk jockeys. Turn down the speakers on your office computer or plug in your headphones. The newest online fad flash game has arrived. "Hero on the Hudson'' is based on the recent heroics of the US Airways crew that was forced to make a water landing after a collision with a flock of birds knocked out both engines. (Yes, the graphics are lame, but this is flash. And it's free.)
Players use the left and right arrow keys to keep the plane level with the water as it falls from 1,500 feet. If you succeed, you get the applause track and passengers begin lining up on the wings. Fail, and......well, it's not a option. That's what your boss keeps saying, yes?
