The cowboy who saw off the men in the black hats. Presented to Brits by the BBC, Guardian etc as a brainless simpleton. Now what and who does that remind you of ?
as seen by all good Guardian readers.
I liked what he had to say about Challenger :
It's all part of taking a chance and expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave. The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future, and we'll continue to follow them.
He's followed them now. I can think of worse people to follow.
