We Don’t Need Another Hero
Samantha Bell, daughter of suicide pilot Joe Stack, this morning:
“His last actions, the suicide, the catastrophe that caused injuries and death, that was wrong,” Samantha Bell, Stack’s daughter from his first marriage, told “Good Morning America” in a morning television exclusive telephone interview that aired today. “But if nobody comes out and speaks up on behalf of injustice, then nothing will ever be accomplished. But I do not agree with his last action with what he did. But I do agree about the government.”
When “Good Morning America” asked if she considered her father a “hero,” Bell, 38, said, “Yes, because now maybe people will listen.”
Samantha Bell, after the coffee kicked in:
Bell later called “Good Morning America” to retract her statement and say unequivocally that her father was “not a hero.”
Rather, she said the only hero involved in the attack was its victim, Vietnam veteran Vernon Hunter, the only person besides Stack killed in the attack.
“I don’t want to hurt anybody,” Bell said. “We are mourning for Vernon Hunter.”
Folks, we’re more than willing to go along with the Disturbed Loner story. Soon as the teabaggers quit adopting Joe Stack as one of their own.
