All the English You Will Ever Need

The English language is constantly evolving, both the words we use and the rules that control the usage of those words.  Therefore, it is impossible to ever have a definitive grammar guide, or, if you will, a Complete Guide of American English.  And that’s our excuse.

Hero

I was recently watching the national news, and they featured the story of a man who "leaped" into a car that was rolling backwards down the street with nobody inside.  They called the man a hero.  However, when they showed the man's actions in real time, the car was maybe going three miles an hour with no danger of going into a busy intersection, or for that matter hitting anybody or anything, and there were no small children strapped in the backseat in danger of dying, or even just being overly frightened.  Truly, if left on its own, the car would've come to a stop probably no more than ten feet from where that man "heroically" climbed through its window.  Yet, it was on the national news (which was more than likely only because they had video of it), and they called the man a hero... even though nothing he did was heroic in the least.
