Spotlight on a Glasgow Hero

So we were on a cruise ship when we heard about the flaming SUV attack in Glasgow, and we watched coverage on CNN in our stateroom, during which we saw the most delightful interview ever, with this Glaswegian airport worker named John Smeaton. I remarked at the time, "That dude will never buy his own drink again." And check it:

More than a thousand pint pledges so far. From the ashes of tragedy the human spirit will always rise...



Update: I ganked the link to the original interview for you; it's a bit buried on the fansite. The name they give is "John Smetton," which may be the reason his fans can't locate him?

CNN Interview of Awesome

He had me at "havin a fag."

Happy Fourth dear!

I flew into the Edinburgh airport the day of the attack and was in Scotland for a week. Everywhere we went there was talk of a Scottish bystander who ran up to a flaming terrorist and kicked him hard between the legs and walked away. But I never saw any real news stories to corroborate that.

That's what I thought (hoping) this video might be about at first.
