If only we could manage to get a few more "made for TV emergencies" like the jetBlue nosegear incident at LAX then the public would scream that we are truly underpaid heros and clamor for higher ticket prices!

Looks like the fault for lowering pilot wages should be laid on the backs of
1) aircraft manufacturers who have learned to produce a reliable product and
2) aircraft maintenance folks who prevent minor malfunctions from becoming massive failures.
