Nordlinger on manhood

February 12th, 2013 by Vader

At the very tail of this column.     

One day, a pilot crashed his plane. He could have parachuted and saved himself, but he risked hitting houses. He maneuvered the plane to bury its nose elsewhere. He was the only one who died. He was 23.

What a man. I wish I knew his name.

Lt. Raynor Hebert is the name of such a man, but in Nevada rather than Florida. Lt. Hebert hit houses and killed four on the ground but stayed on board to avoid Lincoln Elementary School in his path. A park in North Las Vegas was named for him.
