Subway Superman: My Blue Hat Got Dirty
This is the best story of 2007...and it happened on one of the first days of the year. Wesley Autrey, the Subway Superman, jumped down on the New York Subway tracks in front of an oncoming train to save a guy who had fallen in and was having a seizure. The word "hero" gets so overused that I hesitate to use it. But when a man risks his life for a stranger, now that's heroic. Movie stars: not heroes. Wesley Autrey: hero.
