That's liberal New York values for ya . . .
"cries of wonder, and applause."as Glenn would say: Indeed.
What if a Klansman fell in front of the train?What would you do then? Hypocrite!We're still waiting for an answer!
"Let them know their father's O.K.""Twice a hero. First to the man he saved, then to his young daughters. Just seconds after the danger passes, he thinks immediately of them, alone and scared, and offers comfort there, too.A true gentleman.
I thought black men were irresponsible fathers. Clearly the New York Times manipulated the accompanying photograph to pander to politically correct readers, no?
Read the article twice, apparently missing the "Wesley Autrey, a New York liberal..." part both times.
This blog is so much better than the others.
Amazing. I wonder if I would make the same choice.
That's liberal New York values for ya . . .Kitty Genovese and Sandra Zahler were not available for comment.
Hmm, the article didn't say whether he was a liberal or not, although I can see why liberals would try to claim him - they have so few real heros these days.I will just echo Pogo's remark - he is a true gentleman.
Saw him on TV. Said it was his military training that helped him keep his cool.
According to the Daniel Dennetts of the world, however, his action was not a free choice, and therefore deserves no credit.
What a sweet guy. Thanks for putting up this link.
If I owned (or worked at) a lunch counter, I'd be honored to pour that man a cup of coffee and serve him lunch. It'd be on the house, for the rest of his life. Somebody should give him a million dollars. That's something his daughters will remember for the rest of their lives. Something that he himself resists being proud of, but that they can take to heart.
Wait a second, hold the train. Is that a Playboy bunny on his knit cap smeared with train grease?!?!
There was a similar incident many years ago. I read it in, I think, Reader's Digest. A small child had fallen onto the tracks and nobody was doing anything, with a train bearing down. Two guys finally jumped down, one grabbed the kid and tossed him up to the other guy (who had realized he could reach the kid in time, so he jumped back up on the platform). The guy still on the tracks thought he was a goner, but he jumped up and people grabbed him and helped pull him back up. Later, he found a chunk taken out of his shoe where the train had hit it.I found this, too.
He's black right? Doesn't that automatically make him a liberal?
