Did Southwest Do Its Best at LGA on July 22nd?

This is a first hand account by a passenger aboard Southwest flight number 345 that landed nose down at LGA on July 22, 2013. From this account by Nick Bradbury Southwest did not seem well prepared to deal with the situation. The humor the airline is known for does not seem translate to exceptional competence in an emergency. Here is a video from the interior of the aircraft during the hard landing. And a full history is at NYCAviation.
