We can be heroes, pt. 2

"Dirty" Harry Callahan has made the list of heroes. I like DH's style. He's very much do what you need to do to get your job done, but take responsibility for your actions. Know what I mean? Not fond of the rules, because he has his own way. But when he says he'll do something, he's wholly committed to it. A man of honor? I think that's important; I try to be like that, myself (even before I saw the movies, yes). He also doesn't coddle; doesn't play favorites. He doesn't take credit for things he didn't do, and he doesn't take crap from any pretender. He doesn't give praise much either, not explicitly. His praise comes in the form of assent, a quiet respect, and sometimes, a lack of harsh sarcasm. He doesn't argue; he acts. Usually what needs to be done. And he listens to himself. Yes, I know, a tough standard to live up to. Tough to love, too. Nice guy, though. Real stand-up kind of gentleman when you get to know him.

Note to pimps, if you're going to dress like that, cops are going to know you're a pimp!
