"God puts you where you need to be and you just need to listen and take care of business if you get tapped on the shoulder."

Folk wisdom from a man who saw a school bus moving, apparently without a driver.

Via Dan Collins, who notes that this "Guy in Wisconsin" rejected the label "hero."

Good for him, but people who jump on San Francisco cable cars face more risk and danger. 5 MPH?

And he no doubt thinks it really wasn't all that heroic.

See, not everyone in Wisconsin is at the capital acting like an asshat. Special bonus points for mentioning God.

Funny, that's the SECOND thing Barack told Michelle when she pressed him on why he wanted to run for president!

Absolutely. Further, After 41 years of a quite full life, I've come to the conclusion that He never puts more on your plate than you can handle, whether you currently realize it or not. That has brought me a lot of peace over the years.

Good man. Of course he was not at that much peronal risk, but what makes him heroic was getting involved and acting. Many would just watch like cows. So thank you.

Is he related to Dan Collins and the Collins clan (he does have family all over Wisconsin).

Sixty Grit and Neal--very funny! AllenS, good point. Gives me hope for Wisconsin.

When God taps you on the shoulder, sometimes he uses space junk to get his point across. :D

Matt is the "silent partner" who co-founded the Conservative Commune with Dan Collins and me (we brought Bruce McQuain of QandO on-board later on, due to a paucity of Irish names in the original lineup).

Matt basically handles all our tech stuff.
