The intern who helped save Giffords' life, Daniel Hernandez, becomes an instant role model. A reader writes:
The hero intern is Hispanic and gay. This means he could be stopped anytime in Arizona and asked to produce proof of citizenship.

I would love to see him as Obama's guest at the State of the Union address.
