I didn't think Southwest had a bad track record for safety...

I listened to her conversation with the tower on the walk in this morning.  Amazingly calm and collected.  I'm very impressed by her.

She is a real hero recovering after the loss of the engine.

Right on point! I thought the exact same thing when I saw the pictures on TV: Didn't these people pay attention to the safety briefing, is what popped into my mind. Which also led me to believe that with the pilot reacting properly, there must not have been a loss of cabin air so radical that most people  managed it without anyone finding themselves gasping for air.
