Definately more heros needed, agreed.

Thank God for Michael Palin, even with a pretty sharp left hook. And remember that wonderful up field pass he made on the beach in Tunisia, sheer poetry........ :^}

Is Michael Palin your hero 'my dear'?

Sorry!! I couldn't resist that one, [smiles].

My dear - I find that it is easier to get on in life if you don't take what some stupid reporter may write in a Newspaper about people who have heroes, personally. Much easier on your sanity if you make fun of their comments. Isn't that what a lot of comedians do?

Has anyone seen "Trekkies"?
Well, okay then!
(I am thinking of the part when a fan paid for a used drinking glass---(from the actor who plays "Q") and getting all excited because he caught a "Q" virus! (the actor was battling a nasty cold)

No, we are not sick, we simply have found a person whom we feel we have something in common with. And he happens to be Michael Palin. I can think of a million and one people I'd rather not warble on about.
David Beckham, now he's a different kettle of fish to Mr Palin as a "hero". He's represented by the media as an "iconic" figure, an image that the world tries to follow; successful, rich, fashion-conscious and married to someone who has the same IQ as him. How perfect he must be! It's all image, I'm afraid, a big myth.
Sorry, nearly waffling from one of my old media essays there! The point is, Michael Palin isn't represented by the media in the same way and he's avoided being dictated to by it. He's a fascinating person and I'm glad he's a hero of mine.

Ahhh....can't *stand* Britney Spears.
Anyway, there are so many definitions of a hero... Palin's no Hercules. And he's not going to save the world, though I think that would be an interesting idea for a movie, the world in Palin's hands. A Python in control of the fate of the universe. But he's a good man, when there are so few out there now. Thank you, Palin. Keep it up, please. As long as there's something admirable or noteworthy about a person, what's wrong with commenting on it? And of course, the fact that I've had a terrific crush on him fo the longest time doesn't make any difference whatsoever....

Sorry, I was getting too serious and beginning to frighten myself.

We all need to be serious every once in awhile - even Palinites! ;O)

The "hero" figure as defined the media these days is definitely almost always a flat one. brainhurts brought up a good point - Michael's tried to stay away from media a bit, which definitely makes it easier for him to do what he pleases and not be controlled. He's a smart man, that Palin! :O)

As far as the spelling of "hero" - yes, that's correct. ;O) "Heros" is wrong, however (Ellen!)...Dianne correctly demonstrated this with "heroes".
