I Am (not) The One And Only

So there I was telling Hen how Pippy Park in St John's* was named after the unlikely-monikered businessman Chesley Pippy, and remarking on how no-one else would have that name, and lo and behold, the pilot who successfully crash landed (if that's not an oxymoron) into the Hudson River is called Chesley Sullenberger.

I propose therefore that January 16th be known henceforth as International Chesley Day, when people can gather round and talk about the famous Chesleys they've known or admired. There are clearly hundreds of them.

The main festivities can be held here:

*We were living in Newfoundland at the time. I wrote a blog about it and everything.
