1. Cool! Saw this earlier but didn't see who was behind the timely warning.

This is a wonderful story - good for Popovici for speaking up.

5. That's great and wonderful. But it's not "heroic"

 

Words like "hero" lose currency when misused like this.

7. It would have to involve an act of courage and bravery

 

Risking one's own safety for the benefit of others.

8. The guy whose life was saved disagrees with you, but whatever.

"She extended my life, she saved my life," Hamilton said Saturday. "She didn't take me out of a burning car like [in] the big stories, but she took me out of a slow fire. The words out of the doctor's mouth were if I ignored that for four to five years, I wouldn't be here. I didn't [even] know [the mole] was there. She pointed it out. How she saw it boggles my mind. It wasn't very big. I wear a jacket [on the bench], I wear a radio on the back of my jacket that hooks on, so the cords are there. Like, she's a hero."
