In Response to: Unarmed and Dangerous

Centuries of customary culture and tradition portray the hero as a handsome Homeric Hector clad grandly in polished greaves and heavy hoplite gear, but the hailing hardstanding hero of the near future I suspect and imagine will more nearly resemble powerhouse attorney Alinor Sterling ’89, as captured so fearlessly in portrait on the cover of the December PAW. This is the foundation of a fair and favorable future, benefitting all equitably. Ms. Sterling represents a firm world of egalitarian justice anchored in tough love; cross her sword at your peril. My locomotive to the woman, and to all like her.
