    People today tend to label as "heroes" those who simply have the misfortune to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are victims, not heroes.

    In 1966 Houston McCoy was one of two Austin police officers who ascended the University of Texas tower and put an end to Charles Whitman's rampage. Houston McCoy was a real hero.

    Requiescat in pace Houston McCoy.
