“Subway Superman” gets a free bus pass

“Autrey, whose knitted cap was brushed with grease and dirt from the train passing overhead, played down his daring act as he accepted the Bronze Medallion — for exceptional citizenship and outstanding achievement — from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

“Along with the civic award, Autrey was also given a year’s worth of free rides on New York’s subway and buses, then met with real-estate mogul Donald Trump, who gave him a $10,000 check, along with two other checks from undisclosed donors.”

NY Film University also gave him $5000 and offered scholarships for his daughters.

This is, by far, the best news story I’ve seen in a LONG time.
