We hate to sound cloying or earnest, but we are entirely sincere in our admiration for Wesley Autrey, the gentleman who jumped on the tracks in the face of an oncoming train to save the life of a complete stranger. We're in awe of the altruism, and also of the "that's just what you do" manner with which he carries himself. (Our fingers have never been crossed more tightly than they are in the hopes that all the attention he's getting doesn't turn him into an asshole; we've got enough of those already.) Anyway, here's his appearance on last night's Letterman. The clip is a bit lengthy, but let's be honest: you aren't throwing yourself on any tracks in the near future; the least you can do is take some time to admire someone who did.
