The Heroic Paralegal

The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Washington recently asked its online readers, “What is a hero or heroine?” after throwing out the theory (which I can live with) that perhaps well-paid athletic stars aren’t the heroic ideal.

One commenter identified as “Roger Young” shared his everyday heroes, including paralegals:

The Paralegal whose chasing all around getting statements, typing up the briefs IAW Court rules, dealing with stressed clients, getting the forms, driving to the courthouse at 4:50 pm to file them with an ornery overpaid court clerk. W/O insurance/retirement/parking spot making $17/hr is a hero. The slimebag attorney getting the above cops off, who shows up at 9 and leaves at 3, charges you $175/hr isnt a hero.

In addition to attorneys and cops, Roger also isn’t real big on school district administrators, plastic surgeons, and newspaper editors.
