Would pot-smoking, pornography, and even cannibalism change your opinion of the Chilean miners?
One surprising point of contention was our choice of the Chilean miners, who nabbed the number-eight spot on the Top 10 Good Men of the Year list.
For this, our inaugural Good Men of the Year list, we’re not celebrating memorable personalities, newly minted pop-culture icons, or 15-minute men. This was a year of unprecedented challenges, and it cried out for good men.
Even under such inhumane conditions, their duty, selflessness, and composure reminded us that when life is at its worst, we can still be at our best.
It seems like a match made … err … several hundred feet below the surface of the earth.
It should have been a moment of relief and joy for the Avalos family, but a couple hundred journalists did their best to ruin it.
