If I were some day to assemble a pantheon of heroes who died during my lifetime, even if I were to limit their number to ten, Steve Jobs would undoubtedly be among them. Mad genius, insanely great, an adopted child, a self-made man and a gentle soul, he would make a near-perfect role model for any of my children. That, in my opinion, is the very definition of hero.
Others in the pantheon would include Milton Friedman and Ronald Reagan, and in some future time Margaret Thatcher, although she is still very much alive, last I heard.
