But they really aren't. Time published some time ago his list of 37 european heroes
, chosen according to, well, their hero-ness. I didn't really pay much attention to it (I can't even find it; I probably threw it to the recycle bin straight away), but some people actually have, and it's received a lot of flak in the letters section
, two of them devoted to our very own Pedro Almodóvar
(nobody mentions Plácido Domingo
, who is a hero for... er... singing real loud?). But not only: Job Cohen, from the Netherlands, Lars Josefsson, from Sweden, and the major of Tirana (really, whose idea was it to name as hero the major of Tirana?) also get angry letter in that section.
I have only found this reference in another blog
